Well, I hope they are just leaving it in place and not sawing the trusses off and setting them on the bridge. And that 280 traffic count... Is that per month? I have a hard time believing that is a daily count!

As of July 16, 2016 this bridge is in the process of being bypassed and then possibly removed or incorporated into the new bridge design.
