Work continues to progress well. The contractor is on schedule to finish on time. The deck forms for the westbound lane have been placed for the main spans over the river. Most of the metal girders and diaphragms have been installed on the shorter approach spans in the west bound lane. The contractor will begin the installation of reinforcing steel within the next week.
