A reader sends in these high-level photos of the scene around noon on Saturday over Memorial Dr. just east of Studemont, where a 300-ton crane was completing the installation of a few beams of the new Rosemont pedestrian bridge. The vantage point: the 20th floor of the Memorial by Windsor apartments — yes, that’s the new name for the Legacy at Memorial apartment tower, as of a few weeks ago.
And a view of the same scene from this morning, with traffic flowing underneath:
The pillars on the bayou side will get their bridge pieces later. The bridge is expected to open in January.
