    what will happen to those murals?

    They will be recycled.

    There will be wide sidewalks in this area. Perhaps the muralist could team up with the Steel Yard to reproduce some of the more iconic images from the murals in free standing sheets of steel.

    Its was nice to see them for the first time in good light and without the steel supporting members in the way.

    How do you mean “recycled”? Used as fill for some other construction project, or reused in some other location in the Wickenden area?

    Recycled as in ground up with the rest of the concrete and used for whatever it is that ground up recycled concrete is used for.

    They really aren’t in any way salvagable. Even if the bridge wasn’t being torn down, the paint is peeling away almost as fast as the concrete was peeling away.

    Looking at Flickr, plenty of people will be ensure that the live in digital image form if nothing else.
