I have to totally agree being that I did work with concrete and now know that looks are deceiving.Could be rotting underneath also.An iron truss replacement bridge would be good.

Concrete spans have a way of rotting from the inside out.

I've always said that when properly maintained truss bridges (wood and metal) have an indefinite lifespan... Concrete does not!

Tony,this bridge doesn't even look in bad shape from what I saw on street view.

Explains why it wasn't on here... An ugly, non-descript UCEB.

Not even old enough to be considered historic.
