Bernheimer Road Bridge
Posted December 20, 2011, by Tony Dillon (spansaver [at] hotmail [dot] com)

All hope is not lost here Basher...the bridge does still exist! And while it is sad that they didn't just rehab it in place, at least it is sitting intact with hope that it might be reused somewhere...could have met it's end via a cutting torch!
