US 9W Popolopen Creek Bridge
Photo taken by Ian Martin in April 2010
Difficult to photograph-- but FUN to inspect...UBIU access required.
My crew didn't do this one.
I worked this Region in 1992, withmy Cocker Spaniel, Buffy and Per Helwig, P.E.
This bridge just got a red flag from NYS inspectors; apparently there are cracks in the trusses. Being fixed this week.
I think these type of trusses are fascinating but hard to photograph. I had to climb on trusses of a deck pratt truss to get awesome pics[#5718 kettle river MN] These are great pics!!!! Watch for #5718 pics!!!
