bridge grand opening ceremony update

I've continued to watch the Memorial Bridge web site to keep an eye out for the bridge opening date. There still is no announcement as to when the bridge will open to people and traffic, but the grand opening ceremony jumped back a week to 8 August.

A week sooner is a good thing. Hopefully that will quiet some of the vocal complaints about the completion lagging the official finish date of 19 July. It seems to me that finishing a project of this scale within a couple of weeks of the target completion date should be viewed as on time and successful.
