Nice,

Real men built that bridge.

You can see my house from there.

Apparently further along during construction and after this photo was taken, a large safety net was suspended beneath the length of the bridge. 19 men fell from the bridge and were saved by it. The guys that fell into the net became known as "The Halfway To Hell Club."
