Valley City Eagle Bridges
Posted November 26, 2008, by Andrew (aneucreative [at] aol [dot] com)

Does anyone know the height of these spans from water surface to driving deck? I've crossed these bridges a dozen times in the last 18 months and I get the 'willies' everytime. I wish the side walls/guardrails were taller!
