Libhart Creek Bridge

If that were the case I wouldn't have added it. :')

But the bridge it replaced (You can see it on the FB for the road comission) was ugly as sin. This is precast and modern, but at least it's not just ugly beams.

At first I thought this was going to be what replaced the bridge on David Highway, heh.

In any case, this was built to replace a UCEB*? Ha.

*I had to look up that acronym as it hasn't yet seared itself into my brain.
