As far as a wind-up date for the project is concerned. Presto picked out December 25 to "present the bridge to the people of Monongahela a Christmas gift." One lane of the new structure should be open for traffic by November 1. Waiting for a Department of Highway's decision on Friday concerning bids for the dismantling of old houses in the path of the proposed approaches, Presto expects the buildings to be torn down next week.
