Wonderful photos. Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, the bridge is undergoing a much needed renovation. I can only guess that the control rooms are no longer thre, and the long-sealed lifting spans are being replaced.

Driving by daily, one can’t see much going on. Riding along the river, though, and there’s just a bit more to see.

I passed by tonight and the lights were on.
