The Industrial Way

We do a lot driving through industrial areas, not often stopping.  But sometimes you see something that stops you in your tracks.

Like the Cline Avenue bridge.

Then you suddenly realize that the power lines for this neighborhood are not your standard lines.

On the other side you have a veritable industrial wonderland of bridges.



As well as an uneasy reminder that all those puffy white steam clouds aren’t just steam.

  1. Nice pics. I see these same images everyday on my way to work at U.S. Steel.

    • The US Steel in Gary Indiana? These were taken not far away in Hammond.

      • There is a U.S. Steel on Dickey across from BP.

      • Oh! That is what that collection of buildings is. We just assumed it was part of the massive beast known as BP.

        So can you tell me how long the Cline Ave. bridge has been under construction? I don’t think I have ever seen Cline ave. open in over 5 years of driving through the area.

      • It’s been at least 4 or 5 years.
