Opening hatch to access below deck from south sidewalk of bridge.
Opening hatch to access below deck from south sidewalk of bridge.
In February 2017 the contractor began to work on the bridge, with minimal impact on bridge users.  The contractor is accessing the area below the lift span deck from the south bridge sidewalk, where a small access area is coned off.  The south side bridge path remains open during the work.  The contractor is drilling holes through the concrete counterweights under the bridge deck.  Steel plates will be attached to the counterweights to balance the additional weight of the new lift span deck.
