Weber Street Reconstruction - College to Union

I drove under the tracks for the first time today and noticed they have the second bridge up and are potentially working on the third. Are there tracks on the 2nd bridge?

Um. Why does the pylon on the left (if heading into Waterloo) now have a giant square panel with a high-heel shoe painted on it?

Drove past it last night briefly and couldn't understand what I was seeing.

Very interesting. Curious to see what the other 3 will be.

A rubber boot, dress shirt, and a chunk of ham?

Maybe a big fat sausage instead of the ham.

Actually, given the location, a chair or other piece of furniture in honour of Krug next door might be appropriate.

A button, a tire (BFG and Uniroyal) and bacon (Schneiders)??

The other 3 will be "luggage, clothing, furniture. Materials leather, buttons, wood will be on the wall panels."

The "high-heeled shoe" is a style of women's boot from the turn of the 19th/20th Century.

Just need some sheep and a couple of rocks and we'll have enough to upgrade to a City.

I took a ride under the bridge this morning. I applaud the region for incorporating art into this bridge, but i find the graphics they have used make this bridge look cheesy. They look like game board pieces.

I hope that they have been designed to change/update over time.  I don't feel time will be on the side of those graphics.

They should have left it alone. They take away from the semi-Art Deco charm of those columns.

This.  They look a little ridiculous.  If they wanted to do lights, do lights, but this is going to look a little off.
