NOTE: The stones of the two sides of this portion of the the wall are in place and lined up with the red string. The large stone spanning both of the sides of the wall is necessary to provide stength and stabilization to the bridge wall. These through stones are placed every three to four feet in the third layer and the sixth layer of wall stones in each stone wall.
