|At the beginning of August 2013, this is what the entrance to Norristown Transportation Center looked like. A new concrete deck had been poured but the rest of the details would wait a couple more months while they concentrated on the portion of the bridge over the river.
|Finally, with a little over three weeks until the announced reopening on November 11, they have reached the deck on October 16 and have started to lay the ties.
|Two days later and almost all the ties are down at the station.
|A week later, the rails are down and they are dumping ballast at the station.
|One week to go, the third rail is in and they are removing the safety nets along the bridge.
|Three days left and the final touches are being attended to ...
|one of those being the third rail, which would be reconnected here at Bridgeport sometime over the weekend.
