My World Tuesday Season # 2 Episode # 17

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


The Bridge project proceeds through the Winter season and progress has been made. This is a shot from two weeks ago and you can see the far bridge support is complete is and the near one is being reinforced. Here is the original post if you haven't seen it.
They have built a temporary bridge across the Cuyahoga River to work on the East bank.


Here is the construction on the first support on the East bank.

These are photos from today. A walk/bike path under path has been created under the bridge on the West bank of the river. You can see the mill on the far left side of the photo.
You can see the relationship of the walk/bike trail to the river.
So now looking from the road on the East bank you can see the bridge direction and the road it will connect into. The second set of supports is being constructed on the West bank. It will go over only the bottom set of railroad tracks. The cars will still have to cross the second set of railroad tracks that go the the mill.
I do hope you will visit some other worlds today.

Oh it has to be a pain before it gets all better right? I can't wait to see the finished project.

That is quite a project, Tom! And it does look as though they're making good progress in spite of the snow! Look forward to seeing the finished result! Have a great week!

That looks like a mess right now but then construction usually does. I know you'll be glad when it's finished.

Your world looks too cold for me! Great shots!

Titania said...

Great shots of all the work. Main thing there will be soon a good bridge, it is not nice to swim over the river in winter; LoL!
Your header is very beautiful, the bright eyed and bushy tailed beauty. That is how we all want to look in the morning! Happy week. T.

Carolyn Ford said...

It would seem over whelming to me if I was in the middle of the construction! Somehow, miraculously, it will become a beautiful bridge with no thought of the mess it is right now. Great informative post!

Darla said...

I remember you posting about this..I am still amazed at how it all comes together in the end..you know my husband is a construction super and I tell him this all the time.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Great pictures of the bridge progress, Tom... I'm sure it's hard to keep on working during Winter --especially when the weather is rough. But--they are doing good!

Jack and Joann said...

I always feel for the constuction workers who have to continue working in the cold and snow. BBrrrrrr!

Now Fishing Guy, where is your photo for your post? I want to see more than that guy in a hat.

And when you heading to Europe for that trip along the Danube River? That should be fun.

I lived for a long time in Japan during the early 1950s and saw a lot of their bombed out bridges being replaced and recorded that process. I don't have them online at the moment but if you are interested in building bridges, they will appear on my http://sendai-shi.blogspot.com/ blog someday soon.

My pictures taken in 1954 are all in black and white but they depict some of the problems with bridge construction at that time.

Your pictures, though smaller, are very nice.

Louise said...

That's quite a process! I'm sure there will be plenty of people happy when the process is over.

Brit Gal Sarah said...

That's major construction and doing well in this wintry weather. That temporary bridge looks a little worrying though!

George said...

It's good to see that progress goes on during the winter months. I was glad to see that they are making provisions for walkers and bike riders as well. I hope you'll show us the completed project when it's finished.

Unseen Rajasthan said...

Nicole said...

Looks like they are getting closer to something resembling a bridge :)

imac said...

There's certainly a lot of work going on there, I bet it will look great when finished.

Tipper said...

cold weather to be working on that bridge-nice pics : )

Ann said...

Your header photo is just spot on. How long have you been waiting? Didn't know squireels eat mushrooms.

Dirkjogt said...

Nice shots of the new construction. The snow gives the pictures something extra.

Lanny said...

I simply love construction sites. I always have, ever since I was little. In person is great, the best really but I love picture books about construction or puzzles even. So your post today is intriguing I have come to read and look twice today. You can see so much going on in your photos, thanks for sharing them.

Can't wait to see what it looks like when it's finished.
That looks like a cold job. Not one for me!
