It will look more and more slim as it is completed and the braces are removed, but it's hard to imagine this will stand out much.

I'm still curious how they'll keep the birds nests out of the nooks without making it look dumb with a bunch of those spiky things.

Having Zink Lake full year-round will be nice to have again as well once the new dam is completed.

While I'll admit to being skeptical still, now that it's going up I like this bridge more. It's taller and more elegant than I imagined from the renderings. Perhaps the rare thing that looks better in the metal than in the concept drawing.

Looks like the diagonal braces are being cut out.

It's increasingly more pleasant to look at, but I'm not exactly falling in love with it. I wonder if those big stubs where the vertical pieces connect to the arch are also being removed?

I think the flume/dam is still the most exciting thing here. Anyone know if there's been any updates to the flume design? I've been wondering how that will translate to reality.

Saw these posted on Damon's Droneography Facebook.  My understanding is they will start building the east coffer dam later this month.

Finally got by today to see it.   Ugly.

I've noticed all of the rock they have been staging.  That's exciting as they need that in place to start tearing down the remaining portion of the old bridge and then to build the east portion.  Based on how long it took them to build the west portion, and assuming they don't have major weather/flooding issues, it should be complete by early summer 2023.  Do you know if the dam is on a similar schedule?

I know the Gathering Place won't start working on their shoreline improvements until the dam and bridge are complete.  Looking forward to seeing the fencing come down and that area looking "finished"

Yesterday was the first time I've been able to get down to the gathering place in a long time. Beautiful day and all of riverside was packed.

The bridge looks pretty good in person honestly. I've been down on it, and I'm still pissed about the old bridge, but this doesn't look bad so far. The height is what really sets it apart. It is much bigger in person than the renderings made me believe.

I'm also amazed at how much they've been digging out of the river. Guess they have to take out enough to make the new island fit in without changing the hydrology too much.

So this is the new coffer dam on the east side with water diverted to the west side?  

The new lake is supposed to be 10' deep at the dam so while the bridge looks really high now it won't seem as high once water backs up behind the dam.

This will be a beautiful project once they finish--much like the old Pedestrian Fishing Bridge over the Arkansas River.  Can't wait for them to
to finish. Nice $30 million development project to replace the older bridge--well worth it.

I noticed that, definitely an end of an era.  Excited to see progress on the new bridge, anyone know if they will start building on the east side or continue working from west to east?
