NS - Laurel Street Bridge
Posted February 6, 2020, by George A Oakley (Georgeoakley49 [at] yahoo [dot] com)

Geoff,i get a good laugh when travelling on Laurel Street and seeing the homemade low clearance sign on the Spring Garden side of the bridge which is also close to where I live.Can't read the sign on the Neversink street side but I think it's a low clearance sign also.Whenever i'm around this bridge in the future i'll look for a build date which might be engraved in the bridge.
