If I had known that my updates for each of these bridges were showing up on the forum I wouldn't have posted this stuff on the forum earlier.
Anyway, this bridge was reconstructed in May and June of 2010. All good components were retained and reused, and all bad components were replicated. They did an amazing job, IMO.
I shot a video there, the day I discovered that it was closed (October 3, 2009):
A week later I visited, and shot another video, after work had begun. The decking had been removed, and you can see just what horrible condition the bridge was in:
On June 12, 2010 I visited again, and work was 99% complete. It was open to traffic soon after. This is the video:
It is now rated at 21 tons, though I think that's a bit optimistic. No one pays attention to the weight limit signs anyway, and most people go way more than the posted 40 mph speed limit as well.
