Burt Road Bridge
Posted February 10, 2021, by Paul

Despite its age of over 100 years, this little bridge looks to be as sturdy as the day it was built (aside from a few instances of chipped concrete) and looks much more imposing than its length in feet would seem to indicate. It's hard to see in an elevation view in the summertime, however!

Here are some photos from July of 2017 and March of 2018.
