As expected, Forest Park Parkway was closed on Saturday morning for the bridge work, but when I went out in the evening at about 6pm I noticed that the barriers closing the street had been removed. As that was the way I wanted to drive I went that way, and sure enough I could see the concrete forms I’d seen on the flatbeds earlier in the week had been put in place.
It wasn’t until Sunday that I could get to see it in detail, but then I could see that the whole area over the tracks was now covered, although there is still a gap in the roadway to the north of the bridge. I see that there are still a few forms left, and assume that these will be put in place once the utilities have been set up.

Traveling through the lanes of West Norfolk, England, we stop to admire the tiny stream on the edge of the woods.
To our right the trees are dense with foliage, and the stream seems to be a boundary of sorts, because to our left is a wooden fence and a brightly painted gazebo.
And connecting these two worlds a white-painted wooden bridge spans the stream, reflecting prettily in the water.
Although the sky is gray, the whole scene is bright and vibrant with the water flowing and the cheerful hues of the trees and grass.
It is a scene that makes us take a deep breath of fresh air, and feel again the wonder of being alive.
This is an original photograph which has been digitally enhanced to give you a distinctive work of art to grace the wall of your home or office.
This image captures a bright and picturesque rural scene, full of life yet calm and restful. The stream leads us into the picture, adding depth and the colors being a happy and joyful feel.
This image is also available in greeting card format, and would be ideal for formal or informal notes.

An early morning hike in early spring takes us up the bluffs above the mighty Mississippi, and we emerge into the quiet of the early dawn.
We stop to catch our breath, and notice that we have emerged by the Interstate Bridge, now quiet in the early morning.
The trees have yet to come into leaf, and there seems to be nothing but grey and brown hues going into the far horizon; we appear to be alone in this nearly monotone landscape.
But then we spot something; there is one tiny spot of color.
There on a branch close by, watching the same view as we are, is one single cardinal bird, its bright red plumage standing out against the monotonous colors all around.
One insignificant bird, and yet it lights up the scene and makes a point of focus for us.
Today, maybe we can be a point of color in someone else’s life. Even if we feel tiny and insignificant, we can stand out in our own individual way.
