 Believe it or Not !

 GLASS BRIDGE

 The Glass Bridge Construction of the Skywalk began March of 2004
and
is
 estimated to be completed by 4th quarter of 2006.

 Glass Bridge will be suspended 4,000 feet above the Colorado River
on
the
 very edge of the Grand Canyon. On May 2005, the final test was
conducted
 and the stucture passed engineering requirements by 400 percent,
enabling
 it to withstand the weight of 71 fully loaded Boeing 747 airplanes
(more
 that 71 million pounds)

 The bridge will be able to sustain winds in excess of 100 miles per
hour
 from 8 different directions, as well as an 8.0 magnitude earthquake

 within 50 miles. More than one million pounds of steel will go into

 the
 construction of the Grand Canyon sky        walk..................

 GREAT THINGS ARE DONE WHEN MEN AND MOUNTAINS MEET,

 THIS IS NOT ACHEIVED BY JOSTLING IN THE STREET................
