Gross. That new bridge is nasty. I certainly sympathize with anyone who had a constant view of the old bridge, and now have to look at this monstrosity.

Those are some stunning pictures of just how beautiful that bridge and it's surroundings were. Seeing that ugly slab in it's place must be depressing.

Hi,

I wondered if you wanted a photo of the original 1925 Nyberg bridge which is below our property.

The Nyberg Bridge was replaced in 2005 with a 2-span prestressed girder bridge.
