A web site for bridge geeks who grew up near the Mississippi River

John Weeks provides a treasure trove of pictures and stories about bridges that cross the Mississippi River.

He dedicates one page each to the two highway bridges at La Crosse. He notes quite correctly that the Dresbach Bridge is remarkably pedestrian given its spectacular location (it is just south of the widest spot for the upper-Mississippi). The dual bridges five miles further south are far more interesting.

I think all government capital projects should be subject to cost-benefit analysis. But there is something to be said for spending something to make such permanent fixtures as bridges beautiful.

Dave lindahl scam reports you have to make sure to protect the primary repairs and improvements that put the property in a situation customer in the area search for. Don't go crazy. Think twice about a costly restroom or kitchen area transform that will cost you more than you can regain on the resale.
