The tent is almost up; let the painting begin

The Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge is almost dressed up and ready to go … I mean to be painted. The north tower was painted last year. It is hard now to see the south tower but it is the same color as the top span, dark, old metal like. The lower span has been painted already, I think. When the painting is completed, by mid-March, the bridge will be  back in balance, paint wise. The tent protects those of us around the bridge from getting contaminated by old paint and whatever else they take off before painting. The tent has the added benefit of keeping the painters dry and warmer.
