Under renovation

If you follow the trails in nearby Holliday Park, you can reach the river and get this view of the bridge. It is currently being renovated. I'm delighted that they've put "open" concrete railings on, replacing the solid ones there before.

Arched Support Details

Ohhh.....orbs (upper right in pic)! This could mean that this is haunted according to some conspiracy theorists or that this pic was taken on a wet snowy day and is just reflecting the ice crystals in the pic. However I am going to be super annoying and say that the orbs are ghosts eventhough the highway is always busy and there is no reason for anything supernatural to happen around this bridge. In fact the scariest thing around this bridge is the crazy humans driving like nuts on a cold and snowy day.
