Fatter legs needed

They are widening the Huey P. Long Bridge over the Mississippi -- notorious for its tight travel lanes. But to hold the extra lanes and all that extra weight, they have to add more mass to the columns that hold up the bridge. The crews have started that work by building what looks like a cage around the supports. These will eventually be the steel support inside of the tons of new concrete.
