Here is a link to the rendering of the finished product...

City of Omaha Pedestrian Bridge Pictures (http://cityofomaha.org/departments/mayor/EconDev/PedestrianBridgePictures.htm - broken link)

What is being finished now is just the decking - pavement and lighting need to be added -

I think it is to open late summer.

Wow, dave1215 - thanks! those pics do look a lot like the European bridges. The top part almost looks like the Millau Viaduct. Beautiful. How exciting.

Hello fellow Nebraskins; Glad that I am exploreing today. Glad to meet you all.
I got so caught up in the cheers area that I hadn't gotten to all that this CD offers.
I've been here 5 years, in Omaha. (so still a wee bit green) And haven't found all Omaha and the rest of the state has to offer. I've been getting plenty of much appreciated help from folks here.
I love the pix posted and am awestruck by the beauty.
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend.

Hi, tpabes. Yes, the Nawthern Nebraskans are really great. They have all been so friendly and helpful; why, Sunday we went to the movies with some new friends! The alternating warm/windy/snowy weather has been really neat, too. I have dropped in on almost every small business, checking out my resources. Have made some nice friends at the bank too; and have seen some really beautiful older stained glass in every building in one small town - obviously hand-made leaded glass, but no one seems to know yet how it got there or who made it! Still researching a little mystery.

It is so nice to wave at folks and be waved to back. This morning I was standing outside in the blowing snow with my coffee, and one fella in an old beater drove by and hollered through his open window, at the top of his lungs, "Top of the mornin to ya!" And I hollered, "Good mornin to you too!" Just funny and crazy and nice.

Hey, SCGranny,

I loved your picture with the ice on the trees the most! See you have explored the falls. You take some really nice pics. You need to go a little further west about 45 miles and ask about Horseshoe Falls, south of Cody. You have to trek west of the bridge on foot, but last I was there, that was beautiful. My son says it isn't like I remember it. They used to say the Niobrara turned sideways under the bridge because it wasn't very wide and was very deep. If you go - it better be a little warmer and you have to go on foot on the north side of the bridge up to the west to see the falls. We used to go swimming under the bridge, was a big gathering place for the teens and twenty-some year olds. But still beautiful scenery, especially in the fall when the trees start turning colors and the sumac is red!! Take an extra picture for me, it has been many years since I was there!!

Where did you finally light? Everyone is friendly out that way. People will go out of their way for you. Be sure to go to the grocery store and buy some Sandhills Ben's seasoning for your grilling. I bought it just because I knew the guy that made it - but it really is good, they even carry it at one of the grocery stores down here in north east NE. Good Stuff!!

You need to get invited to a branding, that is where you will see the real cowboys doing what they do best, and having fun while doing some really hard work! Be some good pictures there!! Ropin, ridin, and brandin!!

You have fun, I am getting homesick!! LOL!!
