The bridge opened and the work still continues. The construction walk way on the outside of the beams had to be removed. The holes were filled and sanded. Along the new bulkhead, the base of the fence was poured. Just an fyi, there used to be 2 porte-potties, now there is only one. So the crew is significantly smaller.

Lucky for me the bridge opened on Friday, May 27 and my flight from Guatemala came in around midnight the on May 26. It was tough getting up early to see the crowds assembling at 8 am with only 5 hours sleep but it was worth it! People from Ocean, Asbury Park, politicians and the crew were all here to see the bridge open to traffic. As promised, the bridge opened ON TIME! The crew worked through a lot of unforeseen problems to get the job done because of their dedication, skill and talent, the job was completed on time. The new bridge is beautiful and the crew should be proud of a job well done!
While I was away on a residency to Guatemala, my husband Peter took this photos for me of the bridge. Here's a great guy and a hard working man - Arty telling me that the bridge will be paved this week and spend by next week.
Here are the paving photos from Peter's iPhone. The sidewalks are all complete and the "black top" will go one.
