substandard bridges are my favorite kinds of bridges to photograph. being the biggest is the cherry on top. i get excited every time i see a posted load zoned Bridge sign or a low weight limit sign.

This was an interesting statement in the February 4, 1954 edition of the Lexington Leader in Kentucky. This is the Herrington Lake crossing for KY 152 which was built in 1924 and replaced in... 2018. It was a very narrow bridge to cross and had a very low weight limit because of structural deficiencies.
