Triple Wow!!!  Even though there are lots of pix of the bridge and lots of us have seen the un-assembled parts at the last FWW, when I saw the assembled parts at the SWW it is even more impressive.  That is one massive bridge.

How is the inside going to get sprayed with retardant/preservative?
Is the top open?

Work has continued this week on the Sheathing, and as of this photo taken Thursday, borrowed from the Facebook team, the west side is complete.

Ya know, I'm sure it's the wine that's talking, but covering those trusses is like covering a work of art.
I completely understand the historical and practical reasons, but there could be a couple of steel beams under there!
It's like building a box around #9!!
Only partly :)

I agree! Although hearing the pitch of the sound change as you ride through will be cool, and will sort of make up
for the visual loss of not seeing the trusses
