Sellwood Bridge Update for June

aaaBridgeUpdateButtonThe View From Down Under

We’ve Updated the Sellwood Bridge progress from just about every perspective.  We’ve shot pictures from the top, explored the elementary school aspects of it, talked about the computers used in the bridge design, and posted many, many pictures of the construction issued by Multnomah County.  This month we bring you something new.  One of RestOfNewsletterthe reporters from our Sellwood Bridge bureau recently had the opportunity to take a relaxing cruise along under the bridge and took pictures in a desperate attempt to make the whole trip reimbursable as a business expense.  While we denied his expense report we did like his pictures, so we hope you enjoy looking at them as much as he enjoyed taking them!
