^ I was up that way at about that time of year last year. I don't too much has changed since those photos were taken. When I drove by, I observed that pretty much all of the vegetation (though not all) had been removed from the new alignment, and that heavy rock work was being undertaken. The rock work required is pretty significant. Although the topography is fairly flat, the exposed bedrock undulates just enough that the top layer of pretty much the entire future alignment needs to be removed to build a new flat freeway. There was no work ongoing for any of the bridges when I visited. I would expect foundations work would be starting fairly soon for at least the new twin French River Bridge structures. I am actually kind of looking forward to driving up that way later in the summer or early in the fall once the French River Bridges have started to take shape, as I think they'll be interesting looking structures.
