Under Construction: Milwaukee Streetcar Rails from MSOE’s “Bridge”

The orange barrels looked so striking in the evening sunlight as I walked across the “Bridge” between the Science and Library buildings (yes, they do have more official names; see the campus map here 🙂 ) that I had to pause and take some pictures.

I don’t know how I managed to get the photo above to have such a long, skinny shape. I didn’t do anything special; it just came out that way. I’m glad (and lucky), so let’s just pretend I planned it and then used all my skills to capture this exact image 🙂

Once construction is complete, there will be a stop right here at MSOE, basically immediately below where I’m standing. In fact, that square of orange barrels around the rectangular hole in the ground looks to me like it might end up being the exact location eventually.
