Building the Ravenel Bridge

After all the photos I took, I've tried to arrange them in some order based on various topics I found interesting.

And a reminder from T.S. Eliot (East Coker from the Four Quartets)

Old men ought to be explorers
Here and there does not matter
We must be still and still moving
Into another intensity
For a further union, a deeper communion

My First visit to the deck

A visit to the deck - July 21, 2004

This page is sort of a rambling dialog - views of activities that do not yet have a focus. I thought that I would do something about the counterweight system, but could not find a story. So ideas are fermenting and hopefully something interesting will happen - soon.

Building on the go

Looking from above - to the west and to the east

Getting it all together

The beginnings of the jogging and bike trail - along the southern side of the deck

This is the counterweight assembly. Powered by diesel engines, these 125 ton stacks of concrete blocks are used for load balancing.
