I was a little unsettled the last time I was in Brattleboro driving across Rt9 to Bennington. There was a big bridge construction project going on next to the Creamery Bridge. Worried that it would disturb the scenery to the point where it would be difficult to shoot the bridge, I feared for the worst. Yet, when I drove past last weekend, the construction was done, the traffic was diverted off of the bridge and it really doesn’t cause any difficulties for us shutterbugs.
In fact, it has actually made it a little more accessible. I’m happy to say that one can stroll any part of the bridge without the constant traffic. Also this bridge sports a slate shingle roof testifying that it is still strong enough to take the load. The new bridge that handles the traffic has a walkway providing a great vantage point to shoot this wonderful bridge.
