seeing the images reminds me of a recently built and huge bridge {somewhere?} in Canada's down-east (PEI/NewBrunswick area).
I worked with a welder whom 'worked' on that bridge.
A quote from one his many stories about 'working back home'....
"Me and my friends (fellow welders whom also worked on the bridge) will never go on that bridge" he'd say with a friendly chuckle.
makes me wonder.

-he called his wife a few minutes after hitting the bridge...-
must have been to order him some new(clean) shorts.
