People probably don't consider the damage water can do. This is one very good example of it. Hey Ron, thanx again!!

Just got back from a visit. Wow, no repairing this guy. Looks like it will be washed away next big flood. Thanx to Ron Enlow for the tour!!!

Excellent that their are pix on the way. Boo that it is damaged. I have tried to get permission to see this bridge for quite a while with no luck.

Ron has sent me some photos of this Bedstead truss, which unfortunately has suffered a near catastrophic failure due to flooding. It would take someone removing the trusses and having them repaired. This bridge is located in a rather remote location. I will add the photos ASAP.

I have some pictures of this bridge if interested. It recently lost it's middle section of concrete to high water. Have pics of before and after.
