GRUNDY, Va. (AP) Residents across Virginia can view construction of the commonwealth’s tallest bridges without leaving their homes.

The Virginia Department of Transportation has set up an online time-lapse camera just south of the construction site in Buchanan County. When completed, the twin bridges will be more than 250 ft. (76 m) tall and will span Route 610 and Grassy Creek. They’re part of the Route 460 Connector project.

Project manager Mandy Cox told the Bluefield Daily Telegraph that the camera will record the bridge project’s progress from start to finish. The camera takes photos about every 10 minutes.
