Default Re: Post your wallpapers

Yes, Scratch is correct. This is a suspension bridge (similar to the Golden Gate bridge) that was under construction at the time of the photo. It is mostly complete, except that the bridge deck hasn't been installed yet. Those guys are construction workers.

Fun fact: This bridge was designed by the same Engineer who designed San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge. This bridge, located in Portland, OR, was used as a pilot project to ensure new construction techniques would work. These same techniques were used on the Golden Gate Bridge when construction started four years after this one.
