Hush To Watch Bridge Move

By

There was some excitement yesterday at work!  The footbridge going over to the island is needing replacement.  Construction has been going on for several months to put up a new one (I believe it is temporary, but am not certain) and yesterday was the day the new bridge was moved into place.

I am thankful for the co-worker on the other side who ran over to get us so we could watch.  There was a hush in the crowd at the window as we watched the very delicate movements of the crane operator as the bridge was lifted up, swung over the canal, and gently put into place in the exact location that was needed.  We stood there for the longest time as for nearly everyone, it was something we’d never seen before and would not see again.

Here is a short selection of photos that I took from both the upper window and later, from the path on the island.  If you want to see the entire event, check out my Shutterfly album.  If for some reason that link doesn’t work, try this one instead.
