In preparation of replacing it, a new south abutment is laid of concrete under the old bridge, allowing it to still be used. The sheathing has been removed from the north tower, exposing its structure.

A one-lane floating bridge was built across the Sandy River about a mile downstream to detour traffic during construction when the old bridge was removed.
