I was by this bridge June 14th, wish they would get on the ball and make this structure accessible to the public, bridges are not the same if you can't walk on them.
Yeah....I hate those Armco railings as well!......I'm guessing these don't serve a purpose anymore!!
Visited the Tull Bridge on Saturday 17 Feb. This bridge would have intersected with the modern bridge on the west approach. The modern replacement bridge has a bronze plaque indicating it was built 2005 and they are 30 degrees apart from each other. The Tull bridge appears to be ready to be plucked off its piers by a crane from the replacement bridge. I'm glad this is not the case. The galvanized guardrails on the old bridge detract immensely from its character. I would suggest replacing these with period related iron. It will be a great place when developed as a park by the city, given its peculiar angle to the replacement bridge; which is now heavily grafittied. There was more traffic on this highway than I had anticipated - could have been because it was another mild winter day.
Webmaster's note: The photos that were here have been incorporated into the main site.
The Tull bridge will be left in place with the city of Tull taking it over. The City plans to built a park next to the bridge and build an access ramp up to the bridge so people can walk on it.
where is this bridge going to be relocated to?
Visited this bridge again yesterday and it is still sitting on it's piers awaiting restoration/relocation. Still a beautiful old bridge.
