Martin County Bridge #44
Posted February 5, 2014, by Tony Dillon (spansaver [at] hotmail [dot] com)

Heavy I-Beams and a metal deck now carry the load here. The trusses remain and look to be in decent shape but the legs are encased in concrete or otherwise compromised. But I guess as rare as Warren Bedsteads are we have to take what we can get!
