Sawmill Creek bridge – 3rd abutment

Building this bridge is taking a long time…the third abutment is well underway – concrete is poured.  The day these pictures were taken water was being pumped over the concrete; kind’uv  strange when you think that the abutment is actually sitting in the creek!  I wonder if this is the last one – surely it is.  The creek is not that wide.  The next time I’m there I will measure the width.

The first and third abutments. Once the bridge is constructed these abutments will all but disappear.

While I was taking these pictures Sunday morning, traffic over the temporary bridge was constant and yet the “creek” upriver was peaceful and to the camera’s eye idyllic.
