Harmony Road Bridge
Posted August 16, 2010, by Matthew Lohry

It's too bad that this bridge didn't make the very lengthy Frederick County rehabilitation list; although there are still a very impressive number of truss bridges here rehabilitated during the otherwise very destructive era of the late '90's for truss bridges in other states and counties. It appears as though Frederick County is the champion and sets a great example of historic bridge preservation for everyone else to follow. I just wish that others would follow suit...
