New Mississippi Bridge

I was surprised at the rate of construction on the western approaches to the new I-70 bridge north of downtown. you can actually see all the way to the other side, where other preparations are being made for the eastern half.They've already gotten a large number of the piers poured, and are starting on the deck of the bridge.This interesting Art-Deco warehouse will sit right in the shadow of the bridge, which will pass right by it.The bridge seems awfully low, considering that it is going over Broadway. It seems like it will be pretty dead underneath the overpass, but then again, the McKinley Bridge has crossed over Broadway for a hundred years, so I guess it will survive.
