When crossing the Corktown Footbridge the other day, something didn't feel right about the height of the railing. On closer inspection, I realized that it had been busted out of shape.
While it does stick out, it's supposed to be at a right angle (coming out to a point, as many people complained), not piercing out like this.
It had probably been knocked by a sidewalk plow or an errant truck. You can see that the supports up along the bridge are all pushed against the fence.
Hopefully it will be repaired soon.
