Posts Tagged ‘Holy Mother of Pearl! With the Frigo Bridge out this bridge is handling 30-40 thousand additional cars per day. I could have told you that just based on the sound level down below.’

 I was down below my favorite bridge yesterday morning. This is the 172 Bridge, sometimes referred to as the Allouez-Ashwaubenon Bridge,  and it spans the Fox River as one of the two major traffic-carrying bridges in the area.



I like these slices. I finished them softly to evoke a cathedral or sacred space feeling.


Next, the underside of the roadway, taken a little right of center and using a Sigma Ultra Wide lens. By cropping the support structure out, I was going for a high speed power blast.

And, as long as I was down there, why not finish with a nice slice of graffiti?

Bridges are a hot topic here in Green Bay, especially the Leo Frigo Bridge (also known as the Tower Drive Bridge) which developed an alarming two foot sag a few days ago!  The Frigo will be closed for at least 18 months or more and that closure is wreaking havoc on East-West travel in the area.
