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

February 5, 2005: Bridging the Channel Gap

This week, the stay pipes and cables attached to the last pair of anchors (316) were erected

The next morning, Feb 6, 2005: The concrete floor panals have been placed and now the east deck is lower than the west deck.

From the old bridge where you can see my weekly photo spot - about 1 km next to the vertical loading machines
