Brush Creek CR E-310 Bridge

Photo 7: Lower joint, east end, north side where approach ramo meets bridge deck.

Photo 8: East Approach ramp, north side

Photo 9: East abutment, south side

Photo 10: Heading west

Photo 11: Deck wear and tear on south side of approach ramp. Deck seems to be wooden boards with asphalt on top. While we were there, water was dripping from beneath bridge, but surface was dry, which suggests that the boards are sitting in moisture a fair amount of the time.
