The "Big Lift" is on the horizon! Best watching points:

✪ Lure Restaurant at the Ocean Pointe Resort
✪ Reeson Park
✪ The water's edge parking lot next to Mermaid Wharf and Canoe

The entire lift span will be plucked off "the Beast" barge, and dropped into place onto its various engagement points on both sides of the bridge span.

Please note, we do not yet know the specific date, it could happen earlier or later that the date we have set here. We'll move it as new information comes to us. Right now it's set for the "week of" January 26th.
