The article reports that the opening of the new Tacoma Narrows Bridge in Washington will delay for three months. Replacing corroded cabling during the winter led to delays in construction, according to the state Department of Transportation. Once the new bridge opens, the existing span will close for 11 months of upgrades. After completion, the two bridges will operate parallel to each other.
