Murray Morgan Back in Black

Put on some pearls and you'll be ready for formal wear

The cocoon looks to be coming off (on purpose this time) our beloved Murray Morgan bridge but with a surprise. That old guy is looking pretty dapper in his new black facade. According to the City's website phase 1 of the rehab project will be under way for more than another year (with a more substantial phase 2 still to come) so perhaps this won't be his final coat of color. Still, I have to say, I'm a fan of Murray's Goth look for the upcoming holiday and it's great to see progress restoring him to a useful state again.

They believe the bridge was originally black so that color was chosen and here to stay.

Loving it! Thx for chiming in Jake. It's a damn fine look if I do say so myself.

Looks kind of like a giant concert stage with truss rigging overhead. Maybe a future venue for a cool concert.

I like the black color but silver doesn't show accumulated dirt so much. Ever owned a black car?

concert over the Foss... I like it.

The black is very period- I like. (Besides, black will show when you need to clean the bird dropping off of it...)

Just run 5 joules through it (This is the gritty city right?)

About

Although I have another home on the web I thought it might be nice to lead by example a bit and put this blog system up to the test myself.

So far, so good... Funny how I build web tools for other people that are far better than the one's I have setup over on KFnet.
