Appears to be city owned, so why not ask the city what's happening?

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

NBI lists this as Bennett St, but it's actually Old Falls Rd

Looking at the topographic map, the bridge may have crossed a tributary of Lake Thomas

Republicans are never one for facts, anyway. Factually incorrect information is their stock and trade, as is getting upset when caught. Poor poor snowflakes.

What part of "All Rights Reserved" do you not understand? Or do you normally copy other peoples work as your own?

Posted April 10, 2018

Given a choice between the two, I'll take a MOB over a UCEB just because there's some semblance of an aesthetic.

But what do I know?

Just delete it yourself. If you posted it, you can delete it.
