RE: Welcome Back
Posted February 24, 2021

Welcome back, Dana!

Posted February 16, 2021

Thanks Melissa! Unfortunately I'm coming up dry on finding a picture of the predecessor bridge or the other non-Wolf bridges in the area.

Did find a nice lead on a rare ISHC-designed cantilevered deck truss...

Posted February 13, 2021

The bridge you're thinking of is https://bridgehunter.com/ia/pottawattamie/bh55079/, complete with a screencap of the article you mention.

Posted February 11, 2021

To repeat a reply you missed: "This is why we have the forum--so we can learn from people who know local history. Do you have further information or links to newspaper stories?"

Posted February 6, 2021

"""Well Maintained"""

Posted February 5, 2021

The bridge being private and that security companies have any jurisdiction over it is further under scrutiny, considering former Bridgehunter contributor SatollI Glassmeyer filmed his show "History in Your Own Backyard" on the bridge: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4jwr9SI-3Q

Posted February 5, 2021

No, but considering Jason has, since then, marked multiple trusses as "lost" that weren't lost, I'd consider the notion that it's private to be under scrutiny.

Use the county assessor's GIS system to prove who owns it. If it's not private ownership, screencap the page and take it with you.

Posted February 5, 2021

Definitely intact, tho the Western face seems nicer than the Eastern.

Posted February 2, 2021

Actually, Wally is correct. I'd assumed the bridge in the background was the ATSF bridge, but it's the Los Angelese Terminal's trestle, which is itself not-added.

I'll fix GPS coords and add the un-added trestle. Thanks Wally!

Someone created a mess of duplicate entries (Which appears to pre-date Geoff, https://bridgehunter.com/ny/dutchess/17970051797005P/ (My apologies for blaming you, Geoff).)

This entry was a duplicate of the one linked until I converted the entry.

Also already added: https://bridgehunter.com/ny/dutchess/5521830/

Also, the pages that have the grey "Data provided by the NBI pages" aren't duplicates. The pages you're making are actually the duplicates.

Gee, wonder if preventative maintenance would've solved those substructure problems before they got that bad.

Posted January 26, 2021

I've not read it, and doesn't look like something I'd be keen on ever reading, but the bridge on the cover is https://bridgehunter.com/ny/tompkins/beech-road/

On the same topic, Instagram and a book led to the discovery of https://bridgehunter.com/ia/clayton/bh91844/
