Brick Walls

Waterbury, Connecticut

The billboard tower in the first picture is there to be seen by travelers and commuters on I-84, which sails across the center of the city a hundred or more feet in the air. The west side of the Naugatuck river valley is steep at this point, far more gradient than allowed in Interstate Highway design. So they built a huge elevated roadway right through the city, just a couple blocks south of the large town green.
