After a few days of getting the bamboo poles ready for the project, which involved sawing them to length (17′), drilling them out from the bottom (3/8″), and reinforcing the bases with rope and bicycle inner tubes, I got to load them onto my friend’s van (thanks Johnsen’s) and make a slow journey with blinking hazard lights over the Spokane Street Bridge, also known as the West SeattleLow-Level Bridge. In no hurry, I got to stop and see this turn leaf bridge open when a boat sauntered by. This is probably the most elegant opening a bridge can have. Project starts tomorrow on the site.
