My World - Year # 2 - Episode # 6

This is my posting for the My World Meme. It is hosted by Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Louise, Sylvia and myself. Won't you join in, I want to see where you live and thrive. Check out the new layout at the My World site.

The Cuyahoga River is the reason Kent exists. The bridge upstream from the Main Street bridge which I have shown on the My World site is the Crane Avenue bridge. I showed it last Winter after a train derailment closed it down. It is being replaced through the Economic Recovery Act. They are changing the intersection and making better access to the bridge. I am standing to the left of where the new bridge will cross the river.
Standing on the Crane Avenue bridge you can see the construction progressing for the bridge supports.
This is looking down the Cuyahoga River just to the left of the construction.
This is looking upstream to a more calm scene on the Cuyahoga River.

Sorry, had to delete my previous post. What I should have said was this was a lovely series about the new bridge and area. I also loved the shot of the old bridge on the home page.

Lovely river! How nice it must be to live so close to a beautiful river...I hope the new bridge serves well!

Darla said...

I never really knew what went into construction, especially roads and bridges until I married a construction superintendent! It's amazing...I remember the train 'wreck' post! (derailment) My neck sure is sore from looking up...LOL

Nope, you can't see where I live! Since I've been scammed a few weeks ago, I know I'm on someone's hit list, so, no thanks!! What a mess! Except for the trees, they are lovely:)

I didn't realize the Cuyahoga River went through Kent.I can remember several years ago the Cuyahoga River didn't have to good a reputaion in Cleveland. A lot has changed for the better. Have a great one

SandyCarlson said...

That's an interesting view, my friend. I love the colors.

Gaelyn said...

I really like the how the old bridge looks with it's distinctive and time worn rock. Yet can respect change in traffic needs. Sure hope there is no plan to remove the old bridge. That last view is so serene. Was the river ever used for transportation?
Nice pics Tom.

How wonderful to have the Cuyahoga River flow through your town. No wonder you're a "fishing guy"! The trees along the way look so colorful with the changing leaves.

Arija said...

I have always longed to live on the riverbank or at least near it. I love the quiet waters with your beautiful fall colours, althought once the bridgework is complete, the reat of it will return to its natural beauty agin.
Nice capture of the kyakers in your host photo.

Jo Castillo said...

I really like seeing workers doing their thing. :) Beautiful colors.

Rose said...

Those last couple of shots are real beauties...

Stephany said...

These are beautiful, Tom. I can't believe you still have leaves on your trees. Ours have all fallen off!

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

I just love construction progress. Please let us know the progress on the project.

Gosh Tom, it is beautiful there. I am sure the new bridge and intersection are going to be greatly appreciated.

Lovely place you live in - do post pictures when the bridge is finished. Beautiful.

It's a beautiful place.

LadyFi said...

Fabulous photos - I especially like the one you have on TMW! Vibrant autumn colours.

Great pictures of the Cuyahoga. It's nice to see Economic Recovery Act construction going on in Kent. How long will it take to build the new bridge.

Tipper said...

Such a pretty river to show.

I love the river scenes. I'm glad the new bridge is being built. This seems like a good use of public funds.

A nice mellow autumnal atmosphere on the parts of the river that aren't being dug around!
