This weekend one of the local bridges on one of the major highways (417) is being replaced over the weekend. They have setup web cameras so that people can watch the bridge move from the safety of their own homes.  That action will start Saturday, August 11, 2007 at 8:00pm. This close-up webcam image will follow the bridge as it is replaced.


Watch this animated presentation on what they are going to do.
