A question asked and answered in the other file that is running on this structure:
 
What is the currently anticipated opening date?  Answer:  December.
How quickly after that before the current structure is gone?  That would depend upon the contract requirements and the abilities of the contractor.  If I was making the decision given the upstate New York location, it would be,  "Goodby.  I will be back in June when the weather ceases to resemble that of the North Pole."

That is going to be a very handsome bridge when done. Will look forward to seeing some trains on it. Maybe even a steam-powered excursion train...
