Jan 19th: Tom Vidrine reported that the center part of the Boca Del Rio Bridge has arrived today. Both sides of the bridge are nearing completion and it won’t be long before the center part is attached and the bridge will be open.

Here's some pics from Harriet...

Great shots. Thanks so much for the update. It's progressed a lot further than I thought it would.

For kicks, does anyone know how much it will carry, or being built to carry, engineering specs on weight limitations, not limits put on by city council.

I will dive off for the grand opening IRM if no other volunteers.

Harriet, thank you so much for the pics. I keep pics in my journal for memories of changes in AC while living here and greatly appreciate these.

I'm so amazed that the bridge is actually being built. It's been the topic of discussion for as long as I have been visiting AC. Good or bad, it is progress. I can see me bicycling to the Palapa Bar laugh

Now what about the move of the Barge? eek
