Walns Mill Road Bridge
Posted March 8, 2014, by ArtS (asuckewer [at] knite [dot] com)

This bridge is about 2 miles east of the Phoenix column Crosswicks Creek through truss bridge. The compression members look good but the tension members are distorted. The feet are encased in concrete. Each floor beam is supported from below so the truss is no longer functional. I'll post pictures some time in the future.
