The framing for the hammerhead cap at the top of the column can be seen being constructed. Made of wood, the ends of the framing actually have to angle upward to counteract the weight of both the wood and the eventual weight of the concrete. The cap will support the beams, which will support the deck of the bridge. Photo taken in October 1999 by Neb Bullock.
