Hermann Park's New Bike Bridge Under Way
It wo't be in the middle of nowhere, despite how this looks

Construction has begun on the futuristic-looking hike/bike bridge that will link the Brays Bayou paths with Hermann Park.
Eliza Wright of the Hermann Park Conserrvancy tells Hair Balls the bridge, one of four being built for a total of $7.5 million in federal funds, will open in early 2012. It will cross the bayou near Dixie Drive.
Which sounds like a long time to build a not-very-big bridge, but maybe arches are tough to do.
Another pic after the jump.
Is that a tree, or just a very large leaf?
