RI Banner Creek Bridge
Posted June 17, 2019, by Nick Schmiedeler (nick [at] nickschmiedeler [dot] com)

This would have been one monster trestle - approx. 75'-100' from creek floor to top of dismantled bridge, maybe 200' long across creek valley - not much left, couldn't get to timbers on W side but E side looking good and concrete supports still fairly solid in waterway
