chicago bridges go up and down / up and down / up and down

I have a nice view of the Michigan Ave bridge from my office. Every once and a while, the bridge goes up to let tall boats through. Cars and pedestrians line up and wait to cross. When the bridge goes down, the large crowds of pedestrians storm across the bridge from either side. It looks like two advancing battalions preparing to fight in the middle of the bridge. They never do.
