The new south span of the Memorial Bridge has officially been floated in and placed. Crews worked during the evening hours securing the new span so that the Cape Cod barge could be floated out at slack tide once enough water retreated. The north Kittery span will soon be under construction, and the new structure will be ready for use by July this summer. The eerie evening lighting and the under lighting on the bridge span make this an amazing scene to see in person.
Watching the placement of the span was a historic event, and although it was a slow process, it was exciting. I’m looking forward to watching the new structure evolve, and to capturing the process.
