May 25, 2005 Paving is finished - and what a sunset!
I spent the day at the Savannah River Research Center and did not get
back to Charleston until about 6pm. I got to the bridge about 8pm thinking
I'll look and surely they will not start paving before 10pm.
I got there and guess what? - they had not only started they have almost
finished. So here is the end of the paving story.
First - your typical Charleston sunset - simply fantastic
And the 50 foot (more or less) last segment - looking east
The last segment looking west
The tired Bidwell paving machine
Remaining was a src="http://s3.ravenelbridge.net/small gutter to be paved
Here is the entire team waiting for everything to be in their respective
launching positions. The man on the left is operating the mixing machine
while the guys on the right are waiting for the mixed concrete to slide down
the delivery trough.
Doing the finish work and the sunset.
As the mixing truck drives into the sunset, here is a final view of the
entire paving ensemble - a mixer, the team and the sunset.
