I was away when the bridge was completed but I assume it was before the end of July - which was the deadline. I drove across the bridge on August 5th and was all smiles.
I noted that the fire alarm was not yet installed but the wiring for it had been started. The alarm and adjacent dry hydrant should be good insurance from the ever present firebugs.
One picture shows a close up of the lattice. One piece is the original and the other is the replacement for an old one.
I think the old bridge looks great and in addition the site cleanup, approach railings, etc. add a lot to the bridge's appearance.
