Thank you, good sir. We Athenians appreciate real beauty in our architecture. Fake history just seems so cheap to us. Don't get me started on fake Doric and Ionic columns on post WWII buildings.
Well played sir Athenian, well played.
I have seen this before. We used this before. We defeated the Trojans by hiding in a wooden horse. Granted we were able to disguise ourselves perfectly while in Troy for the evening. Nobody ever guessed that we had a group of brave men inside that horse.
Unfortunately, everybody in California will see that there is a UCEB hidden in this wooden cover. Sorry CalTrans, but you need to consult the Athenians before you try to hide things in wooden frames.
The previous bridge here was actually a historic metal truss bridge. When viewed from beside, the replacement bridge with the fake, pointless covering on top looks almost as dumb as the new fake covered bridge in Ashtabula County, Ohio: http://bridgehunter.com/oh/ashtabula/smolen-gulf/
See photos from the county.
Bridge replaced in 2000 with concrete bridge with architectural, non-structural wood roof in reference to historical bridge.
