Doe Run Bridge

To me, the concrete looks shaved off at the top. Seriously, doesn't it look like it was once a straight rectangular shape???

Yes the sides were cut down, as they were too high to see if anyaoncoming traffic was coming. Moved up to this area in 1960, and can sort of remember the sides taller.
