They were so proud of this bridge. If it was wider you could drive a truck over it, Larry said. That is him on the bridge He also helped me get my glasses out of the lake. He says in four years when he retires he just wants to go out and save bridges. I offered him work. He and Nels will get along just fine, talking rivets and welds and such. He also made me notice the signage, which I had, being parts of or replicated span parts with rivets to hold them up. Awesome work.
I like it ! I can get behind this type of recycling anytime. The old roof trusses made a dandy bowstring.
Very unique!......and at about 80 years old it is historic.
Hard to classify it as an historic bridge..... hmmmm, how about we call it an "Historic Re-purposed Structure" or HRS for short.
You gotta admit it's better than an MOB!
Quite an interesting reuse of roof supports.
