Default The Bridge

Drove past the bridge that will span 44 at Brownwood, all lit up. The sign and the accent lights look very cool.

I will have to check that out some night.


This afternoon I was in the area to see Godzilla: King of the Monsters at Brownwood's Barnstorm Theater but did not notice any bridge?

It sits on the other side of 44 in a field but close to the abutments where it will rest.

Any word on when the bridge will be installed? I assume they’re waiting for the pillars to cure fully before they set the bridge. That should be soon I would guess.

I did note some very good sized chunks of concrete across from Shooter's World. Are these the pillars?

No, those are for The Lofts at Brownwood - elevator shafts, I believe.

They did seem rather big for pillars.

The bridge to nowhere. I don't think an MMP has been built south of 44 and even if it has all the houses are south of the turnpike right now. Still no bridge etc over the turnpike.
