That would be me.
I think it will be far enough along to merit an opening ceremony like they did in La Vega, with minor details still needing attention.

There won't be a road bed. I think that is not a minor detail.
We will depend on you JD to post ribbon cutting photos

The topic wasn't how wide the river will be after the new bridge is built; it was how wide was it before. The pic I posted was in May of 2023. Construction had already been started and fill added, and the photo showed it was over 100 ft wide at that time.

Kicking a dead horse but the picture in post 763 is with the fill added.

Not to kick a dead horse, but this picture from post 763 is with the fill added, and still shows 100 ft.

Well. They're still quite a few days from pouring with only a month and a half to go.

And that's just the abutments. Then they have to set or cast-in-place beams, then a roadbed deck and then guard rails and striping. I'm thinking May - weather depending
