Red Bridge Getting There

The iPhone is much harder to use one handed--like when driving--to shoot photos, but even from this shot we can see that the new Red Bridge bridge is rapidly getting close to completion. The road bed is just about done on the bridge; main work will be on the approaching roadway now. West of the bridge is starting to take shape--west bound traffic is now on new roadbed and fire station 28 has a new apron.

So we'll how the work goes from here--the hot weather did slow work for a few days but it being dry helped to keep things ongoing. The bridge is scheduled to open in the fall.

And hopefully, that will be a bridge to SOMEWHERE...right?

Stay safe out there.

Yes this road is actually USEFUL--it is a major east west residential pass way.

Many think that the new bridge comes at too high a cost to the appearance of the area, but it's hard to tell right now.

I plan on a more extensive set of photos in the near future.

Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend.
