Grove Street Bridge West

Photos 

The east approach

This is how you see the bridge as you leave the cemetery. It appears that there is a causeway that was poured between the Grove Street Bridges across a backwater of the Oconomowoc River.

I'd slap that west approach across a t-shirt! How would I get permission? (1 shirt only, to be worn by me)
