PI Update: Bypass Nears Completion

Construction on Pleasure Island's No. 5 Bridge, the bypass around the Island, has neared completion as the span reaches the Pleasure Island Water Taxi dock.
 These Pleasure Island Blog SkyCam views show the bridge from up high.  Here we see the bypass wrap around BET Soundstage and Adventurers Club.
And passing behind the Paradiso 37 restaurant approaching the dock on Village Lake.
It appears that the water taxis may dock in that new area.
Once the heavy construction work begins on the Island, pedestrians traveling between DTD West Side and DTD Marketplace will use the bypass to go around the work.  This is supposedly a temporary bypass but it appears to be well-constructed for heavy use.  The dock ramp here connects to and from the Island between Paradiso 37 and the future outdoor amphitheater area where Rock'n'roll Beach Club once stood.
