They plan to have the entire thing complete sometime in 2024. Then they'll remove the tunnel and the old bridge.

I heard the tunnel closed yesterday. So that means the new bridge is opened as I write, or at least some of it then?

The tunnel is closed, and the new bridge is indeed partially open!

I’m glad I captured this as any previous drive through this is now historic.

What year was that?  That's before there was even any thought of replacing it!
