29 July 2001

The first 1/3 of the bridge showed up yesterday. The center of this section will sit inside one of the towers. The right will sit on one of the concrete counterweights. You can see the attachment points for the cables that will go over the towers - three on each side of each end.

East Side Tower Base - Click for larger image

Closer image of the east side tower base. If you look closely you will see a structural frame laying inside the tower base. This will be pinned to the concrete pedestals on the bottom and pinned to the bottom side of the bridge on the top. The pins will act like hinges. This will allow the bridge to move lengthwise as it expands and contracts with changes in temperature.
