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.

Is that a tree, or just a very large leaf?
