Yeah, it lasted roughly a hundred years with no issues. Probably somebody texting and attempting to drive at the same time.

It's amazing that these bridges don't get more damage over the years, from snow plows if nothing else. I'm sure drivers are as careful as they can be, but we're only human after all..... times how many years it's been around....it's really in great shape.
