Next week Pasadena's Colorado Street Bridge turns 100 years old. I read an article about the history of this concrete icon that was very enlightening.

The bridge at completion was hailed as the longest and tallest bridge in Southern California. Read the following article to find out more about this most amazing concrete structure:
