Matthew, I tend to agree with you on this...maybe some of our other learned pontists will verify if we're right or wrong.

I know the NBI classifies this bridge as a concrete stringer, but to me, it sure looks more like a rare curved-chord concrete T-beam bridge, looking at the street view. We have nothing like this in Minnesota, so I don't have much to go by for comparison. Perhaps somebody could either verify this or confirm that it is a stringer, as the NBI says? I would be curious to know. Good post!
