I would guess it was about 225 feet long.

I took some photos of it not too long before the abutment failed and it collapsed. My daughter was a toddler cause I remember her chasing butterflies under it. Unfortunately I found out after that not to rely on 1 hard drive to store pics on. I think some of them got printed but I haven't come across them yet.

This must have been one of the longer spanning lenticulars built.
