Looks like we’re in the final days of this bridge’s life, with the replacement process scheduled to start June 21, 2021 according to this article: https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.courierpress.com/amp/759775... . What happened to this bridge is so frustrating and I will really miss seeing it as an Evansvillian. Definitely a huge loss for our local cultural heritage!
Briscoe is sure to be flooded given how high the Ohio is right now!
I read in an older book about historic bridges of the middle west that the bean blossom at one point had collapsed. Does anyone know what that refers to? Possibly partial decking collapse and had been rebuilt?
Here’s hoping this lovely bridge can be preserved somehow! Driving by it in such a state these past months has been very saddening, and I’d hate to see if gone forever.
Does anyone know what happened to this bridge?
This bridge seems to look very similar to the removed Endicot Road Bridge and even has a slightly bent railing like that of the former bridge. Might they be the same bridge?
I did take a picture but I couldn’t find it. These google map images are pretty up to date and accurate as to what the bridge looks like though!
