A was so afraid that I was going to see an MOB when I clicked on this page...instead I was pleasantly surprised to find an actual historic bridge!

I thought the Pratt Pony Truss bridge on UNL's East Campus was a lot of fun! It seemed strong and sturdy and can hold a load of up to 10 tons. A person can walk across the foot bridge part and be a small load, or drive over it in a car an become a larger load!

It was kind of pretty in it's own way, but not beautiful to look at. However, it is a fun and easily accessible bridge that I would recommend to the avid bridge hunter.
