Bismarck's Liberty Memorial Bridge at night

Bismarck’s Liberty Memorial Bridge is an aesthetically pleasing replacement to the old through-truss bridge that stood here since 1923.  I was fortunate to work on this historic replacement as the public information officer.  The glow of the bridge itself was a tedious design process, getting the lights to shine enough to light up the bridge, but not so much as to disturb the neighbors.  On the opposite shore, the Mandan side of the bridge is the memorial plaza, the 11 white spires surrounding the flag.
