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

January 8, 2005:Getting there: the West Ramp and Approach

X marks the spot where the old and new bridges intersect (at least the bottom half of the X)

A perfect mix: Two palmettos framing the approach (left) and a sign to I-26 (right) Click on the right image and figure out which way to turn to get to Savannah

West Ramp Gap

I was standing under this guy and making a video of the crane lifting cross-members for assembling the next section of the ramp.

The I-don't-know-what-to-call-it ramp (East Bay Ramp?) - east of East Bay looking north toward the main approach (left) and south (right)

The I-26 approach - who said concrete curves could not be beautiful?
