Wolf Creek Bridge

I was out at the former site of this bridge on 7/16/11 and it was replaced by a very ugly bridge. This bridge was destroyed by a careless dump trunk driver failing to put down the bed of his truck before crossing the bridge. The truck hit the bridge with such force that it was destroyed

This was a striking beautiful green through truss bridge that graced the area. Unfortunately I am fairly certain it was replaced sometime in the late 1990s because unfortunately it was on the main road to a power plant and steel mill and was destroyed by a truck.
