The new bridge is done. Please visit so you can update your ratings and pictures.
How predictable. Reviewing the plans for the replacement. Typical pre-stressed girder with stupid looking arch-shaped facades on outside of the bridge. Has "pedestrian outlooks" on the bridge which I assume were placed so people who are overcome by how ugly the new bridge is can vomit over the side of the bridge.
They might as well tear the bridge down, its the Ohio thing to do with concrete arch bridges, at least in this part of the state. Dayton literally went through one by one and demolished all their historic concrete arch bridges. Columbus did the same thing including one of the most beautiful works of Art deco I have ever seen. At least this way, people in Ohio won't get confused and think they are in Indiana.
Thank you, Miami County, for recognizing the historic significance of this structure and showing appreciation for its 90 years of service--by ripping it down and putting up a UCEB with a marker! Preciate it!!
