Photo Challenge #241

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.

  1. Didn’t you have this as a previous Photo Challenge? It is the door to the Westport Housing Authority on Canal Street. (I say this because I think I won that challenge…)

  2. That is one eno lane I do believe or that brick building to the left of eno rd

  3. Maintenance building canal park

  4. Saugatuck fire station.

  5. Looks like Aquarion’s pump building in front of its well field at 1 Canal.

  6. Apartment building at the corner of Post Road and Saugatuck ave?

  7. Kathie Bennewitz

    Wps facilities dept at 2 canal st

  8. I think we need to talk with the boss/owner of the blog, because obviously, an employee is not working out. 🙂

  9. Please stop beating up this horse. He has taken us to many wonderful places. One mistake does not make a failure.

    • Dear Mary, It was entirely in humor and jest (I even put in a smiley face). It appears Dan took it as such, too. He even replied as third person. AS penance I’ll make another contribution to the 06880danwoog donation funding. Hopefully the money will be spent on hiring better personnel. 😉

      • Thanks, Mary – no worries! Matt and I are on great terms. He is a true supporter, whether he agrees with my posts (often) or not (sometimes). And – in an only-in-Westport coincidence — I’d already planned on using one of his photos as next Sunday’s Photo Challenge. Stay tuned!
