So this morning Evan (the boss) and I went down to the bridge to see how things are progressing down there. We'd heard rumor that the government had lit a fire under the backsides of the local works department in an effort to get things moving, and it looks like it worked! This was the scene from above a couple days ago: (photo by Gavin Jones)
and here was the scene this morning at 10 a.m.:
At that time, it was already more than halfway across the river, and I heard later in the day that it was already all the way across! We may actually be able to drive across it again before the end of the week. It's astonishing to see how fast these guys are working. I'll post more photos of the finished bridge.
