Westport sure has a lot of bridges.
Last week’s Photo Challenge showed the underside of one. Every “06880” reader figured that out.
But where was it? The William F. Cribari Bridge in Saugatuck? I-95, nearby? The new one on Saugatuck Shores? The old one on Kings Highway North, near Fort Apache?
Nope. No. Nah. No sir.
The image showed the view from underneath the Ruth Steinkraus Cohen Memorial Bridge — aka the Post Road bridge over the Saugatuck River. (Click here for the photo.)
It gets tons of vehicle traffic every day, and a decent number of pedestrians. It’s rarer for someone to paddle underneath it. But Maggie Gomez did just that, and sent the shot to “06880.”
As Dan Herman notes, the fiberglass pipes shown are electric and telephone conduits.
Besides Dan, other correct answers came from Rob Hauck, Robert Mitchell, Seth Schachter, Jay Tormey, Seth Braunstein, Jonathan McClure, Fred Rubin, Andrew Colabella, Robert Fatherley, Breno Donatti, Jalna Jaeger and Michael Brennecke.
Maybe there are more paddlers than we realize!
This week’s Photo Challenge is back on dry — very dry — land. If you know where in Westport you’d see this, click “Comments” below.
