I've been doing this for a while now it seems. This is one of favorite hobbies, but anyways. I'm J.P. above you will find my photo blog link or where ever it lands on my bio page. Here is a link to my facebook if you would like to discuss stuff. Personally I'm from the Sunny Side of Louisville (southern Indiana), and I'm excited for the opening of the big 4 bridge across the Ohio.

Picture for the recent flooding we had down here. With it less then a mile upstream from the Ohio, it got really close to overrunning it. This was the crest though.

New Whipple???
Posted February 25, 2018

So in Indianapolis I noticed over the canal what appears to be a modern whipple truss. Thoughts......And Go....

Btw I know Modern/Non Historic.

Posted October 24, 2017

Road leading up to bridge removed. I wish they would just add parking lot and let the bridge stand.

Way too real
Posted August 24, 2017

Seen this while looking at a model train, I actually laughed out loud at this scene.

Posted July 19, 2017

This bridge has been extremely altered on the left side. Its also listed on shaard.

Posted July 17, 2017

This what gives me hope, that we haven't found everything in Indiana Yet.

This Tee beam is interesting because of the Brick that is layed into the side of the bridge. Not sure if its decoration or if it actually helps support the structure.

High Bridge (Kentucky)
Posted April 25, 2017

Added a new street view, someone was crazy enough to get up on the deck and make a panoramic and its on Google. You really get an idea of how tall this bridge really is.

Posted April 25, 2017

Looks like its about to get cleaned up and used again for a trail finally.

Possible Covered Bridge
Posted April 25, 2017

So while just looking around Indiana, I noticed this Covered Bridge. It could be just a stringer, but it seems almost abandoned and could be an old alignment of Coffee Road. Just wanted to see what everyone else thought before I added the bridge.

Tree removal on the north side of the bridge has started.
