Despite the adverse weather, another major milestone for the project was reached Friday evening, October 28, with the successful removal of the form traveler over the inlet.  The final form traveler removal now clears the way for many of the more conventional finishing activities.  There is still a considerable amount of work remaining, some of which will include barrier construction, finger joint installation, electrical and lighting work, University of Delaware instrumentation work, final stay adjustments, stay damper installation, placement of a polyester polymer concrete deck overlay, and tower crane disassembly and removal.
