Fall Sneak-Peek Tours SOLD OUT
…but Now Delayed

All 800 slots for the fall sneak-peek tour of the bridge sold out in days! While we have installed the roof (as shown above), we’re sorry to report the Top Deck will not be ready in time for the Fall Tours. Changes to the floor plan up top cascaded into the need for additional bracing below –– which takes time to arrive. No regrets though, as the new design is sensational!

We’re going to add more dates for the second half of December, weather permitting—so, stay tuned. Everyone who signed up for the original tours will get a shot at the new slots a week before we take them public.
