Where Delmar goes over the Metrolink at Des Peres the Trolley Route goes from two tracks to one (or one track to two if you are traveling west). It looks like there is just some final concrete pouring to do, then this section will be complete.
Today marked a big milestone in the Delmar Loop Trolley development, with the opening of the new DeBaliviere bridge over the Metrolink, 3 weeks ahead of schedule!
Joe Edwards was the first to cross the bridge going south, and as we witnessed this historic moment he was closely followed by other traffic as the hard working builders removed the remaining barricades. By the time Joe did the loop and returned, the bridge was back in business.
As Joe said, DeBaliviere has already been transformed, and it’s only half completed!
Driving past the DeBaliviere bridge the other day I noticed what appeared to be some sort of covering over the new bridge. On further investigation, I see that concrete has been poured (and covered over) on about half of the bridge. Progress!!
At both ends of the new bridge, progress is being seen too
And the sidewalk that will eventually carry us over the bridge is also being prepared
