PHOTOS: Latest Progress on Bridge Connecting Magic Kingdom to Grand Floridian
The work on the bridge to connect Magic Kingdom with Grand Floridian is progressing at an increasingly rapid pace. Today, we saw some notable changes to the site.
Gone from the site is the large crane that stood against the tree line in stark contrast to all around it.
Retaining walls have been completely installed on both sides of the canal.
The only vehicles left on site are a few small trucks or fork lifts.
The bridge itself looks completely finished an in place.
It is quite wide, so it should be able to handle crowds and ECV and wheelchair traffic with ease.
On the opposite shore, work is finally progressing on the landing. Gone are the benches and trees that marked the old pathway’s end. We also can see some supports in the water for what will likely be the attach-point for the bridge when it is extended across the canal.
Work to remove the bricks has rapidly picked up in the last few days, with over half of the pathway now completely cleared.
Imagine having to sort through all of those bricks? It is no wonder that Disney chose to opt for re-creating your brick instead.
A new height beam is up for construction work coming up for the bridge and pathway.
Will you be using the bridge when it opens? Let us know in the comments below.
