The project entailed erecting two temporary towers to prevent the bridge from sagging further and ensure worker safety while performing permanent repairs to the bridge. Facing a $50,000-a-day penalty for delays, new pilings were placed at the bases of piers 21 to 25 and hydraulic jacking of the approximately 1,600 ton superstructure back into place was performed in time to allow the bridge to be opened to traffic 2 weeks ahead of schedule on January 5th, 2014; just in time to accommodate a sold-out crowd heading to Lambeau Field to watch the Green Bay Packers face the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC wild-card playoff.
