PCL has started the construction of a temporary work platform on the east side of the remaining former rail bridge span. Next week a small crane will arrive on the east side, and in the coming weeks a second larger crane will arrive by barge. A second work platform (trestle) will also be built on the east side below the rail bridge to accommodate workers and equipment. The next phase of work taking place in July will involve in-water piling work for the east pier of the new bridge.

The current bridge will remain open to pedestrians, cyclists, vehicles, and marine traffic until the new bridge opens in late 2015.
