    Yes, thanks for the pictures. Needed a fix.

    You guys got me addicted to looking at the camera every couple days also. Saw barge sections being loaded out and one drill rig gone last week.

    Concrete guys on 5 or 6 single shifts and drill rigs on 5/24s it looks like. Debris on bottom put a crimp in their style for sure.

    We need Steve to go back and talk someone into moving the camera to the other side
    It's hard to see much now.

    I don't know anything about bridge design so it has been interesting to see how things are done.

    We watched a tubular rebar cage approaching a barge with a truck and a crane moving it...laughed as it looked like a very long Chinese Dragon in a parade. It was bending in all directions as they wrangled it. My length estimate was over 40' using my old lineman pole setting eye.

    The contractor has good crane operators. I watched on the computer a couple times while two cranes placed the concrete beams.
    Both times the cranes were placed in awkward positions but they were still very smooth when placing the beams.

    Thanks Lee,

    Had to go to a couple BA meetings (Bridge Anonymous) last week when the camera was down.
