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
