Still Stuck Up in the Open Position: Cass Street Bridge undergoing repair

The Cass Street Bridge over the Hillsborough River is still undergoing repair. After a state inspection by structural engineers, it was deemed "structurally deficient." Work on the $1.7 million project began in July and is still not completed. The bridge, built in 1927, is one of five over the Hillsborough River into downtown.

I photographed it before in color - kind of a wicked and wild modern color composition (click
