I was fortunate enough to get a private tour of the Hawthorne and Morrison Bridges last week. We were able to ride to the top of the Hawthorne Bridge as it raised to let a boat pass. It was an entirely new and exciting way to see the city. But I was most amazed with the 1 million pound counterweights that lowered as the bridge raised. Being one of lone planners among a group of engineers, it gave me a new appreciation for the skill and knowledge required to make such a grand structure.
