Joel and Matthew have their commentary on the tour of the Fremont Bridge:
Joel: "I liked seeing the bridge getting controlled and raised. The bridge colors are blue and orange. We saw two sailboats come through. I ate some raisins in the tower. My favorite part was watching them control the bridge."
Matthew: "I loved seeing the bottom of the control tower. We had to knock on the door and then we had to walk up some stairs. It looked like a viewing platform and the walls were made of metal and glass. And then I liked seeing the bridge controls. There was a panel and you could press each button and then the bridge could do something. We met Jared, who was working in the tower today, and Mary, who is the supervisor. There was a little tugboat that came through, and a police boat, and a sailboat. We saw the Aurora Bridge, and the Fremont Bridge itself. We saw bicyclists and pedestrians go across the bridge, and a lot of traffic, too. My favorite part was looking at the boats."
