I tried to make up for not being there yesterday by going to see the second section of the three-part bridge installed. Here are a few pictures.
Utilizing two cranes, the crew is positioning the second section of the bridge over the railroad tracks.
Bringing the new section in line to make the connection with the existing section.
The two sections now erected are connected, making a single span over the tracks.
The view through the two joined sections towards Mitchell Park.
The third section, to be installed tomorrow, will complete the connection with Mitchell Park, to the right in this picture. Eventually, when it is fully operational, an extension of the Hank Aaron State Trail will run through the new park and cross over this bridge. From that vantage point will be a panoramic view of the Valley and downtown Milwaukee beyond.
(Full disclosure: I am a member of the Friends of the Hank Aaron State Trail board of directors.)
