Bridge to the waterfront: A good idea, then and now

Meet the tireless reporters who covered not just the bridge, but the people who witnessed its rise.

Herald reporter Lizz Giordano spent many a morning, afternoon and evening at the site, several of our photographers did the same, and Herald columnist Julie Muhlstein talked to many of the folks who came out and recalled how people managed back in the days of yore.
