Join us for a narrated tour of the huge reconstruction of the vital Gerald Desmond Bridge. Over 15% of the nation’s imported waterborne cargo is trucked over the bridge.  When it is completed at the end of 2019 with its new 515-foot tall towers, the bridge will be the second tallest cable-stayed bridge in the US.  It will have the very much needed additional traffic lanes, a dedicated bike path and a pedestrian walkway.

The narrated tour will cover the history of the bridge, construction methods and upcoming milestones.  We will travel by bus through the construction site, stopping at locations to view the rising bridge, which is a truly awesome edifice.  The tour promises to be a very unique experience. Tour is for a limited number so register early to secure spots.
