I will miss capturing photos of different news events around Whatcom County for The Bellingham Herald when I start my new job at DB Skimboards / DB Longboards (although I am very excited to start the new job and focus on the boardsports I love). This was one of those types of assignments where I figured it would be a standard construction photo, but it turned into a video opportunity and I even got to interview the designer of the bridge. Senior Bridge Engineer Jiri Pertold, of David Evans and Associates, talked to me about the new Potter Road bridge and the installation of the new girders and how the bridge differs from the previous Potter Road bridge on Oct. 29, 2014. I also included a few photos from the day below.
