Thursday Challenge - Building

It is the building of our local Coca Cola bottler. I am a Coke (just the drink, not the drug) addict, so this one seemed appropriate.

Missouri Department of Transportation

MODOT has been in the news a lot over the past couple of years. It usually has to do with money and road projects. I guess I can understand why they are being scrutinized. Here is just one example of a bridge that they built. The bridge is rather old now. Looking at the second photo you can see exactly where it goes - Nowhere. Hmm, maybe they are having some problems.



Just kidding around. I am not even sure if this bridge was built by MODOT or the city. It use to be functional and did not simply lead to a mound of dirt and grass. Looking at the deteriorated state, I don't even believe it would be safe to use. The funny part is that this little bridge is on MODOT property (behind the building on Missouri Blvd).

Mid American

I would have to say that the busline says it all. Mid-American. Not much more Mid-American than being at the Capitol Building in Jefferson City, MO.

Our current Capitol Building was built between 1913-1917. You can find out a bit more about it here.

Harry S. Truman State Office Building

Looking across the Expressway at the Truman Building. To the left of the building you can see the Missouri River Bridges in the distance. The brick building to the left is the current State Health Lab. They are building a new one near the old State Penitentiary.

This kid is the best pole vaulter on one of the local 8th grade teams. He looks like he is in good shape on this jump.
