IAIS - "Happy Day" Bridge
Posted December 22, 2016, by Pete Kroeger (Geerheadpete [at] aol [dot] com)

This bridge was tore down December 21 2016. It took Miller Trucking and Excavating 25 hours to demo , build retaining walls, place rock fill and ballast for new track . They worked around the clock to have the track operational the morning of the 22 of December 2016.
