center span, raised

After I left Fuller Gardens I turned to the north and east for a quick Portsmouth visit. I was delighted to find Memorial Bridge in a different state than it was when I left there on Monday. I knew the barge was gone; the surprise was that the center span was sitting high, raised between the two towers.

There didn't appear to be any work going on although I did see two workers clad in bright yellow vests and hard hats walking down the steps from the control room. I'm guessing that the span was left in an up position both to allow boats through and to prevent people from trespassing on the still very much under construction bridge.
