    The Buena Vista Street bridge in DCA got painted a new color last night. pic.twitter.com/dybgogAD"

    Hmm...
    Sorta breaks with it being based on a real bridge (that's never been painted from the photo's I've seen). What do you think?

    I like it. And I think it was just modeled after a real bridge, not that it was supposed to be a copy of that bridge,

      I liked the original. Looked like all those nice old concrete bridges in la. This looks prettier I guess.
      In the quest for quality, I have no problem with the characters footing the bill.

        I like it. Don't know if it's accurate, but I really like it.

          I'd really need to see a pic of it, with the rest of the street viewable, to know for sure.

              In a lot of the pictures I saw before, there always seemed to be staining coming from the light fixtures. I wonder if they did this because it would be easier to maintain and look better than an all white bridge.

                ^ That's exactly what I was thinking.

                          Just grabbed these from Big Orange Landmarks as a reference to the actual Bridge it is modeled after.

                            Has the bridge on Buena Vista Street always been this color? on Twitpic

                            definitely like it...

                              For what it's worth, the bridge is by the original Hyperion Street Disney Studios, and was part of the look and feel of the community in which Walt Disney set up shop.
