Art of Transportation: Craning to see the moon

By John Dougherty / ADOT Communications

A nearly full moon is visible in the blue sky between the cables of a crane moving bridge girders for the South Mountain Freeway.

While everyone will soon be looking skyward when the total solar eclipse occurs on Aug. 21, ADOT photographers are always looking up. They're usually trying to capture shots of a bridge girder going up for the Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway or the latest overpass being built. Sometimes they happen to capture unique cloud formations or a nice shot of the moon. Today's Art of Transportation photo shows a crane and rigging framing the moon during the construction of the I-10 and Price Road interchange in Tucson.
