I've only seen pics on Facebook.
 
The concrete piers/abutments are done. They are assembling the arch now.
 
It's hard to get pics because the whole area is closed off now. The trails to the Upper falls have been closed for re-construction.
 
Trains should be going over the new bridge in November!
 
The road under the bridge should re-open late 2018.
