On Sunday, Rick Kidd and Curt
Fox took to the skies, flying over Lincoln and capturing some great
shots of the work underway on the Salt Creek bridge south of Lincoln. While
Kidd flew the plane, Fox was busy snapping pictures.
The Salt Creek bridge provides
access to Lincoln from Interstate 55 from the south. It is also the
most direct route from the city to Madigan Park, Lincoln
Correctional Center and Logan Correctional Center. With
the bridge completely gone, those traveling from Lincoln to any of
these three locations are currently using the Woodlawn ramp onto
Business I-55 south of Fifth
Street was closed to through traffic in March. Construction of the
new bridge is expected to be completed by November.
