Johnson Street Bridge

With half the Johnson Street Bridge gone I am always reminded of the gap-toothed smile of a six year old, though it's not quite so engaging. Despite the near manic urgency of the decision to build a new bridge some years ago nothing seems to be happening except the projected cost is rising (up about $15 million over the original budget).

That is one ugly design for the new bridge. It's awful! Who was the brainchild who approved it? I'm so sad to see the blue bridge go. :(

It would be a pity if this bridge disappears from sight. A remarkable design in its own right.
