South Street Bridge

To the right of the highway, you can see the old supports for the South Street Bridge, which is being completely dismantled and rebuilt from scratch. This was a sorely needed project, as the old bridge was dropping chunks of itself onto the Schuykill regularly.

And a shot of the upper deck of the Girard Point Bridge, one of my favorites in the area. This bridge rises very steeply, up to the upper portion seen here, giving you the impression that you're ascending into the skies.

It's the most wonderful time of the year...

That would be, pothole time. They filled this one soon after I took this pic, but not before it produced a few caps for me. Can you believe this road was paved in 2006 and it already looks like this?
