Fortunately, the bridge appears to have suffered no damage according to ARDOT, but the bus driver needs to fined at the very least

Posted October 9, 2018

I don't know why it was listed as "other" when it's most likely a slab. I've changed the type. If someone has more knowledge, feel free to make changes.

Anyone else having problems with Google Street View? It's not letting me aim the view, just adds a random shot.

Not everyone understands, friend Anonymous. There are many bridges I'd love to visit if I had a TARDIS.

Posted August 18, 2018

Someone goofed, most likely. I've corrected it

If you're going to stir the shit pot, Anonymous, don't forget to lick the spoon

Demolition underway

Posted July 17, 2018

Bridge has recently been rehabilitated

Posted June 29, 2018

Bridge is currently under refurbishment one lane at a time: new pavement, new railings

Posted June 19, 2018

I attempted to visit this bridge, but it no longer exists. NBI shows it was removed between 2008 and 2012.

Posted June 19, 2018

There is now a Facebook page dedicated to saving this bridge: https://www.facebook.com/Bigwhiteriverbridge/

According to the latest update, the group was given an additional 45 days on May 24th to save the bridge.

Posted June 19, 2018

I visited this bridge 6-16-18. It is now barricaded and posted as Bridge Closed.

Posted June 8, 2018

NBI suggests this was likely abandoned circa 1962.
