Apollo 4 on column of fire

New bridge

Kristy and I went out to drive back and forth over the new 35W bridge and it was nice. Much wider than the old one, and now it actually feels like you are crossing a bridge. Part of the reason for that is that they’ve stuck some non-structural decorations on it, that aren’t great but are better than lack of decorations; plus they’re using some really cool-looking things on which to mount the traffic signs. But also it’s just a bigger, more massive structure. It’s got a real concrete divider now, though, so you can only see the river on the one side at a time.
