Yes, the bridge has been replaced with the MOB ped. Pieces of the original have been made into "art" (?????)

Photos 24 & 25. Also if you shut off the isometric view it clearly shows the MOB and the amphitheater.

I don't think an MOB is there. According to maps, the old bridge is still standing. Does anyone have proof that the MOB has actually replaced this bridge?

The art is clearly symbolic of man's inhumanity to bridges.

Yes, looks like a MOB took over.
