The Moon Bridge

Check out this video with information about Jared Flynn’s latest project.  Taking the granite block from a massive dry stone railway bridge abutment and turning it into a huge moongate feature.  This video shows excellent flythrough drone footage as of the abutment as the crew is preparing to dismantle it.  Sadly much the abutment will be with a modern concrete abutment.  But with much of the granite exhibiting pressure cracks and other issues, rebuilding it out of stone would have been a massive undertaking indeed.

Since this video was created, Jared has been working the stone in a storage location and has shaped up the the cheek ends.  Now to shaping those voussoirs (stones that make up the arch)!
