Default Symmetry - Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge

I had the opportunity to walk the site of the Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge in 2007 (to be dedicated in October 2010 and named the "Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge"). An 8 shot pano taken from Nevada, looking towards Arizona. Symmetry of the supports stepping down to the Colorado River. An incredible project.

calr,
Each support frame stepping down the gorge, with the exception of the column height, is identical.

I thought the photo showed only one of the supports under construction. Now that I look again, I see the other columns behind it.
