During peak tourists holidays the traffic in any given direction can slow to a crawl, due to the ongoing construction project.
Some of the barriers have not fared so well.
The temporary bridge is the only route across the river in the downtown area.
Here, you see the old bridge on the left, that will one day be the new bridge when the temporary bridge on the right, becomes the demolished bridge.
Barges clog the harbor and the inlet, at times.
The only way to describe it is, "A mess!"
The towering cranes, somehow, do not blend with the "old city" theme.
So, until the "under construction" is finished I avoid the congestion, when possible. As we cross the bridge we get the feeling of looking at the fort through prison fences.
