Looks like we’re getting closer! Compare the week before last with last week.

We’ve got sidewalls up now on the northernmost one-third or so of the bridge.
The surface on the section leading down to the Oberer Wöhrd looks nearly done — still needs some guardrail work, of course.
Oh, so remember those oddly coffin-sized cut-outs in the bridge supports from a few posts back? I think it’s safe to say they’re going to be the base supports for the next section of auxiliary pedestrian bridge.
I sure hope the intention is to dismantle the auxiliary pedestrian bridge on our end (the north side) and reopen that section of main bridge before the next section of auxiliary bridge goes into service. It’s just barely tolerable now with the tourism traffic as it is — a bottleneck on both the Stadtamhof and Regensburg sides of the bridge would make me want to jump off it.
Oh look, here’s something new:
Those are going to be supports for the auxiliary pedestrian bridge. Pretty lucky that they don’t have to sink new ones into the river and anchor them down there, but rather can just build off the existing ones. Looks like they got the concrete coffins in just before the rain picked up again and otherwise would have flooded the “graves.”
