They are setting the girders for the new bridge today. The bridge will open in the fall.

This was a nice bridge, but really needed to be replaced. Concrete was missing from places on the abutments and the girders were completly rusted. It also needed to be longer as the highway will now have four lanes in each direction instead of three. The new bridge will be an art deco style. Photos of the demolition of the bridge and construction of the new bridge as well as a webcam of the site and information on the project are available on:
