LIRR - Shinnecock Canal Bridge
Posted July 10, 2017, by Robert F. Sirico (robertf [dot] sirico [at] verizon [dot] net)

Hi, Gents......You've posted a great picture of the bridge, but I think that you need to check the given length of the main span Parker Truss for a 'typographical error'. I had inquired to find out the date and extent of the repairs to the main span which attached bolted plates to some of the hangers, lacing bars and for change-out sections for the bottom lateral system. I noticed (yesterday) some pockets of corrosion on lacing and other members which seemed to have been covered by a relatively recent paint job. It is a monumental task to keep after all the structures on the LIRR right of way.

Thanks for your hard work in putting this site together.

Bob
