Newport Avenue bridge open by Thanksgiving?

Somewhat recently I heard a rumor (on the radio, maybe) that the Newport Avenue bridge would be finished and open again by Thanksgiving. Since Thanksgiving is now barely a week and half away, does anyone know if this is true or not? Sure would be nice…

Update: Oh for god’s sake… I should read local news before I post something. KTVZ has a short article about it:

The project, begun last spring, was supposed to be completed a week ago, but a number of issues have delayed the project – and any more snow, like that seen Sunday, could bring more delays….

If all goes smoothly from here on, the new span over the Deschutes River should be completed by Thanksgiving, or soon thereafter, to the relief of Westside motorists and merchants, both of whom have been struggling with detours for months.
