A few years back the Newport Bridge was widened with an additional lane on both sides for motorbikes and pedestrians.  Looking at the 2013 photo, notice the location of the original light pole compared to
the 1968 photo.  Now they are in the process of building a second bridge. More photos of the building of the second bridge will be further down on this page.
