Bridge build photo update #4

My kids became some extra crew help a few weekends ago during the center pier concrete pour.

I pulled the flood damaged bridge frame out of the creek bed with the bulldozer. It will be cut up and used in the contruction of the new bridges steel truss frame.

Here are some more recent photos showing the start of the center pier and the west abutment.

A side shot showing all three now in various stages of construction.

Your name in brick.

I have been kicking around the idea for awhile now. The idea of offering for sale a custom made brick with your name pressed into it. Maybe for promotional stuff, like a town fundraiser. That or the name of your town, club, buisness, maybe even a favorite team name. I dont think anybody has ever offered this in this way before. Yes ive seen engraved brick sold all over the place. But not 3-D "pressed" in names, just like the old time bricks had in them.

It would be very unique.

Wouldn't be near as much written on the bricks. Pretty much a single word or maybe two.
Engraved bricks can offer more words, but not the depth. They just look like they were something added on later. An afterthought. Not like that when its really a part of the brick itself.

Im looking for opinions and feedback on this idea!
