Recent aerial photos of the new Port Mann Bridge in Vancouver

I had these emailed to me. It was one of those forward-forward-forward emails, so I haven't a clue who took them. Mods, it's your call.

EDIT: Sourced 'em!

Amazing shots. I am also amazed that they still run logs down the Fraser.

Wow, those shots are amazing. it's even more amazing when you understand the scale of the pics, the existing Port Mann next to it is not a small bridge.

Looks to be a structural element that the pedestrian bridge is curved to me. Certainly not simply decorative.
