Stopped at this bridge over the weekend. The two truss lines are laying on the ground. The floorbeams were not visible on the jobsite, but had been non-destructively removed from the trusses suggesting maybe the trusses are intended for potential reuse somewhere.

At least if CLR is doing it the bridge has a chance of finding a new home.

Not sure if this is Select or Non-select. This one got missed and I would have to find my Historic Bridge Inventory sheets to answer that question. There were a couple bridges that got missed. All bridges that were private or abandoned and not on the "books" were left off intentionally.

Just found it is being replaced. George Harrison said it best: All Things Must Pass. (f-word goes here)

Went by this earlier and it currently has no deck. There is a crane there but deck removal looks very clean. Do you suppose it is getting refurbed? It has a 12 ton weight limit and is lightly traveled. The north end floods a lot. I emailed Dan Reitmeyer with CLR to see if they are the contractors and get a little info.

Uh-oh, do I detect a possible replacement?

This bridge is not 79 ft long, it is only 60 ft long. dont know why the info above says it is longer than it really is.

This bridge is deck-high with flood water. It has been a lot worse, though. 100 years, lots of flooding and farm equipment...still holding strong. Safe to say, "they don't make 'em like that anymore".
