In this photo William Moylan is working with Garran Wesseman who is standing on the right hand end of a side girder on Tower Three of the Downtown Span of the Ohio River Bridges Project. This was the first section of the downtown span that was attached to Tower Three and marked another milestone in the construction timeline. After this section was placed all three towers were supporting sections of the new bridge.

The surveyors continuously monitor the placement of the bridge components in order to make sure that the bridge is staying true to the design specifications. Their survey equipment is all electronic and communicates the measurements to the surveyors and engineers in real time so that the decisions they make are accurate.

William Moylan talks with his partner Garren Wesseman as they measure the placement of the side girder and road girders of the downtown span.

Early February in Section One of the Ohio River Bridges Project I captured the images in this post. On this particular morning I was scouting the area around Adams Street into Main Street at Slugger Field looking for photos that would use the early morning light.

Adobe Camera Raw Color Versions of Yesterday’s B&W Images

I am still experimenting with this Adobe Camera Raw workflow and may be using it more in the future in lieu of creating HDR versions using the entire three frame bracket sets.
