Larry Lovetinsky will be doing a bridge talk on July 19 at 6:00 pm if you are interested in hearing him babel about our bridges then you should make a journey. It's near Iowa City.
We should all thank Larry for all the efforts in saving these priceless pieces of history.
I was greeted by Lyle, who did these bridges and he deserves a ton of credit for a great park. I have more pictures and I now know what a roof truss bridge is. It came from an auto dealer and it looks like a bowstring, but it was a ROOF TRUSS. Yikes. Love it.
Also went to see Upper Bluffton. YEAH. She stands proud in the prairie grass, waiting patiently for us to come take her apart.
Johnson County might want the pony truss. More will be revealed.
Thanks Tony, I am going back today to take the walk. It is beautiful out. I will also stop and talk with the folks at the Conservation Board. See if they have any info on where these bridges came from and if they want more....
