Bridge over Troubled…

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

I just read a statistic that a stretch Kingshighway near Forest Park in St. Louis handles a traffic volume of roughly 50,000 cars a day. That is, it is a rather busy street on par with Michigan Avenue in Chicago or the Strip in Las Vegas. Part of this length of road is a derelict bridge that runs by The Hill neighborhood. Luckily, this bridge is slated for replacement in the very near future. Lucky, because while I don’t have the eyes of a bridge engineer something tells me that you should not have large chunks of concrete missing from pieces of a high-traffic bridge.  At least we were confident enough in the bridge to park underneath a few minutes it to take these pictures.
