Bridge looks great! A great job done. Now if only my state (Missouri) could also learn to reuse and repair bridges instead of tearing them down.

I agree, red would be a great choice. Don't see enough bridges in this color. I do like silver however too.

As of 2010 has been rehabilitated, currently under discussion what color to paint it. Green and Silver currently in close contention, but Red newly emerging as a dark horse in the race. Red! Red! Red!
