Several finishing activities continue as the work progresses towards a January 2012 opening to traffic. The concrete bridge barriers are complete and the new polyester polymer concrete (PPC) deck overlay work is on-going. Bridge electrical and lighting work continues, but is not critical for the bridge opening. Final tensioning adjustments and damper installation work also continues for the cable stay system.
