Much if not most of the bridge work lately has focused on the pit walls and flooring. Both pits have received new concrete floors. Concrete wall repairs in the south pit are complete; the north pit walls are almost done. The trusses, stationed on the north side of the canal, are close to being completed. The posts on each end—lifting posts—will be replaced—when the trusses are moved back to their original location; the new lifting mechanism will be attached to them. An egress ladder has been set into the canal wall on the southwest side. The counterweights, metalized instead of concrete like the originals, are scheduled to be put in place the first week in June. Look for a large crane to do the job. The counterweights will be heavier than the originals as the open steel deck floor grating is heavier than the old steel deck flooring.
