Replaced by UCEB

View Exhibit map

Bridges in this category are historic bridges, often metal truss bridges, that have been demolished and replaced with a new concrete girder or stringer bridge, or UCEB (Ugly Concrete Eyesore Bridge)

The term UCEB is more often used to refer to a replacement bridge for a historic bridge that did not need to be demolished, but is sometimes used generally to refer to replacement bridges lacking aesthetics

This category can also include historic bridges that were demolished and replaced with nondescript steel girder or stringer bridges, perhaps called a USEB (Ugly Steel Eyesore Bridge)
