Photo taken by James Baughn
Thanks Nathan - that makes sense.
I am pretty sure its painting containment around the bents, they must have been repainting the bridge when James was there.
I'm curious as to what is looming in the background of James' photo, since it seems absent in street view.
This bridge and the plate girder to the south are very irritating to get to. The road this bridge goes over has no legal parking areas. And reaching the road this bridge carries and the road the plate girder carries is more difficult than it looks on the map. Many unmarked one-way roads, many closed roads, plus the fact that the roads are grade separated. I got so irritated at the situation I drove over the shallow curb on Chestnut and parked on the grass. Fortunately no cops came by!
