Bonnie Branch Bridge

Thanks to Julie Bowers / Workin' Bridges since a conversation about another bridge indirectly led me to discover that this bridge is an exceedingly rare example of a Lane truss! I added a streetview and categorized it accordingly. It should be considered among the most significant historic bridges in Maryland.
