    Center Street Bridge

    Anybody around Des Moines went and walked across this yet?? This bridge is an amazing piece of art. Couldnt find a night picture, but when its night they have a bunch of colored lights coming off of it.

    Re: Center Street Bridge

    I was on it for the fireworks show Thursday night. It's pretty nice. The light colors light up the river below it. Although standing on the center crossway where the light are can catch you off guard - you can feel this part shaking or bouncing. The rest that goes straight across the river on either side doesn't do this.

    A couple times. Amazing to see how many people have been checking it out. Granted, some of the traffic is related to flood gawking.

    Pretty cool bridge. I thought it would have been cool to have the colored lights go up the supports too. Maybe they can't for airplane reasons or cost reasons.
