Broadwalk Bridge

Work Started today trying to get the giant steel work in for the Broadwalk bridge which will be lifted into place on Thursday. They managed to get the base fixed with little problems. But then the giant crane hit a snag it has a computer control which measures the wind speed and it would not let them lift as the wind speed was to high. They needed to lift the massive steel supports very high over the trees in order to lower it into place but by 3 o'clock they still couldn't do it due to high wind speed. I have know doubt they lifted it in the end but we watch for several ours as they kept trying only to be defeated by the computer and weather. More reports tomorrow
