June 27, 1947 - New date for bridge opening: A three-foot addition to the old abutment at the east end of the Mason Street bridge, over the East river, will be poured Saturday and another abutment to carry the new 56-foot span will be poured Tuesday, F.J. Euclide, acting city engineer, said today. As soon as the abutments are completed, steel for the span will be moved to the site.

Providing weather conditions remain right and no complications develop, the bridge should be open for traffic by Aug. 15 at the latest. It has been closed since early March to allow new steel decking to be placed on three spans first and then ripping out of the old approach which had become hazardous.

Placing of steel for the new span should begin about July 7, about two weeks will be required to erect the span and an additional two to three weeks to pour the floor.
