New I-70 Bridge – 11/2/2012

Working downtown, I can see the new I-70 bridge in St. Louis from my office. I decided it wasn’t too far from the office and walked to it over lunch. I’ll admit it was a brisk walk to get there and back in an hour, but it works! If you need a scale of how big the river is, here’s a close up shot of some rock drilled out of the river bed for the supports.

It probably doesn’t look like much from the photos, but it is amazing to see.

I’ll provide more photos as it gets closer to completion!
