August 2014 Bridge Update — wo ist der Bruckmandl?

Not a ton of visible progress this month, but there is a missing persons report of sorts that is overdue.

I just realized that I forgot to comment on the Bruckmandl’s missing limb (at first) and then the rest of him. This is the Bruckmandl — the little bridge dude. He’s said to be watching the construction progress on the Cathedral.

I saw in the depths of last year’s winter that he had some battle scars — parts of him disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Here is the TVA report on the subject. Turns out, he’s going auf Kur for quite some time. Here’s our reminder for him until 2016. Check out TVA’s report on the subject:


Nice weather — if you like it sunny, but still and muggy — has encouraged more usage of the green areas on the islands under the bridge.


Here’s a sneak preview of how nice it’ll be to walk on the finished product. Those pavers are beautiful to look at and feel great under your feet (as opposed to the cobblestones).


Here’s a parting shot some photographer’s rare capture of a nearly flat river about to be disrupted by a motorboat. Oh well.

    I didn’t realize the Bruckmandl was afb. Last time I walked across, he was still there. I wonder if they’re going to repair him as well.
