In response to a question from the public about whether or not the bridge openings allow for vehicles and pedestrians to use the bridge, they do not. The bridge openings are scheduled to allow for maritime traffic only at this time. The bridge is not scheduled to be open to vehicles and pedestrians until 2013.
