Roan, who owns a photocopy business in Littleton, CO, has had a lifelong interest in bridges. Growing up in New Jersey, he often visited New York City, which he calls "bridge heaven," not only because there are so many (2,027), but also because of their age and style -- the four major bridges over the East River were all completed before 1910. Bridges from that period, Roan explains, "are ornate. They have a lot more detail -- they were dressed up. Today's are strictly functional."
