Now Our Bridge Has a Rail

BridgeRail2Those of you following the saga of our village bridge will be glad to know the railings are finally up.  It wouldn’t do to have anyone falling over the edge.  The concrete railings, with an inlaid stone pattern in the panels, were lowered into place by crane  An additional metal rail, bolted on top, completes the ensemble.

While the inlaid panel pattern in the concrete is an effort to make our bridge beautiful — and the effort is to be commended — I would have preferred some open work so that we could glimpse the water as we drive over.

BridgeRail3Now, the next suspense is will there be a walk for pedestrians generously provided after the cement road barriers are finally lifted.

Stay tuned.
