Pomme de Terre Route H Bridge
Posted July 22, 2012, by jayhawk

I stopped by this bridge today - MODOT is doing some work on the deck. They have it stripped of asphalt and have damaged sections of concrete highlighted with pink spray paint.

I assumed the worst when I saw the "Bridge Work Ahead" signs, but it looks like it's actually going to be repaired.
