In many ways this website is cataloging history. A slice of history called "bridges." Is not the notable construction of today the history of tomorrow? For me, any community that hires engineering and installs community structures that at least attempt to have more meaning than mere transportation should at least be acknowledged.
I personally don't like these or the MOB's being added to this site, but with the word "Notable" included in the site description I guess it leaves the door open. What's historic is pretty much cut and dried, but what's notable to one person is likely not to the next.
I have simply learned to ignore with grace...
Luke thanks for triggering my question asking button. I have had mixed feelings about including these types of structure in our database. They are a lot more interesting than the made to order bridges, I even added the first couple of these types of structures built in Oregon when I first started cataloging bridges, but have since not included them.
I am not saying they do not belong I am just curious what others think about these more and more common little cable stayed structures?
