That is true Nathan. In 2010 the bridge was shut-down for a project that included work on the upper lateral bracing. The first section was removed and reconfigured to allow a greater vertical clearance. The bridge also received isolation bearings and a concrete cap repairs.

Most of the repairs would go un-noticed to the untrained eye with the exception of a two-tube steel rail added along the roadway to protect pedestrians and the steel hangers.

This bridge does have a special place in my heart. Along with being an excellent Conde McCullough steel structure, it was my first fracture critical inspection after I began inspecting bridges.

I have included a photo from our inspection. It just goes proves that whenever you close a lane on a narrow bridge, the largest bulldozer in the county has to go by.

This bridge was apparently rehabbed with the overhead bracing altered. http://quincyeng.com/projects/winston-bridge/
