Crews with the Department of Transportation reopened the southbound lanes of US 395 over the Blue Bridge at about 6:30 a.m this morning, one day ahead of schedule.  The project leader says they were better prepared for the southbound work after running into problems with the expansion joints on the northbound lanes last week.   We can all breath a sigh of relief and enjoy a quicker commute!   I took a walk along the bike path at lunch to check on the work.  Is that plywood I see holding the bridge together?
