Washington Street Bridge
Posted January 11, 2012, by Nathan Holth (form3 [at] historicbridges [dot] org)

This is unbelievable (or maybe it is the way historic bridges are treated). Years ago this bridge was demolished and replaced, and the trusses were salvaged and placed on top of a replacement bridge. Now, Toledo wants to demolish the trusses!
