Could this be the last detour? I sure hope so. The St. Augustine Record reports that The Bridge of Lions and the new (ugly) temporary will be closed not only to motorist but also pedestrian traffic. So, from 9 p.m. today to noon Wednesday, (when the rehabilitated Bridge of Lions will FINALLY be opened to traffic) traffic will be detoured to the State Road 312 Bridge. That is one heck-of-a-long walk for some.
A public opening ceremony for the rehabilitated Bridge of Lions will be held at the west end of the bridge at 10 a.m. Wednesday. Then finally the historic Bridge of Lions will reopened and I plan to be one of the first groups to walk over this beautiful bridge a four-year renovation project.
