Here’s a Halloween tour of the Murray Morgan Bridge. You’ll see why state engineers closed it to traffic last week – probably for good.
A lift span – we hope so, anyway.
Looks like the innards of a shark. It’s really the innards of a bridge column.
Rusted through. But it is holding up the bridge (for now).
Note the rusted out rivet head. There are a lot of them elsewhere.
