  Concrete slurries and the Morrison Bridge beyond
by mtncorg

The Morrison Bridge was completed in 1958. A regular concrete bluff was built up from concrete slurry that was leftover - washed out of the truck beds of concrete trucks involved in the bridge construction. The Esplanade wanders atop the slurry and provides a cantilevered steel deck out over so that you can look closer at the 'artifact' or gaze across the river at the buildings beyond.
