Building the Ravenel Bridge

After all the photos I took, I've tried to arrange them in some order based on various topics I found interesting.

And a reminder from T.S. Eliot (East Coker from the Four Quartets)

Old men ought to be explorers
Here and there does not matter
We must be still and still moving
Into another intensity
For a further union, a deeper communion

April 16, 2005:Joining the East Bay ramp with the Meeting Street Ramp

Paving of the roadway and bike path is almost complete

A nice piece of engineering. As you can see above, the vertical supports for the Pearman bridge are in the middle of the bike lane. Here you can see the rebar waiting (April 2, 2005) for concrete which is waiting for removal of the vertical supports. What to do?

Build a bike lane detour - as shown here - a nice platform of pressure treated wood, with hand rails. No second class job here for the bikers, walkers and joggers.
