Eisenbahn Trail - Milwaukee River Bridge #2

Photos 

Oblique View Of Bridge, Looking Southeast

This bridge is skewed slightly off straight north-south in an north-northwest to south-southeast direction, much like the other Eisenbahn Trail Bridge, about 2-1/2 miles upriver.

The sculpture is called Orientations Device, by Carl Billingsly.
