Good news: The bridge will be taken apart and be reused in another location. See: http://www.wellsvilledaily.com/news/20171207/parts-of-tappan...

Seems like the TZB is going to be reused in some way. So that's at least not all bad. See: http://www.wellsvilledaily.com/news/20171207/parts-of-tappan...

As far as my daughter is concerned, no "headache bar" is needed. She will freely supply the "headache" to you if you supply the over weight truck!

Merry Christmas

This bridge is not lost, it is placed in storage to be used as part of a trail. See: http://www.route66world.com/states/oklahoma-states/historic-...

I really hope that this bridge was really built by Vikings as its name implies. It certainly looks old enough that it could be true.

Just added this one. On the view on Google Earth you can see where the abandoned alignment of US 40-National Road crosses a creek with a bridge. Now the old alignments of Nationl Road in this area are usually original arch bridges. So can one figure this out? Is this one of those?

Like the great Pyramids of Egypt, or Stonehenge, or various Aztec and Mayan Ruins of Mexico and South America this will remain a mystery for great minds to discuss and debate until Christ comes back. I will just default and say that it was the aliens who built the bridge for a purpose only they know. Perhaps there is an X-Files episode that covers it or it has been discussed at length on the Coast to Coast Radio Show.

I added the page to bridgehunter to reflect that the bridges are now relocated and open to the public in Koteewi Park, Noblesville, Indiana

This bridge seems to be in a field. The river it supposed to cross seems to have shifted to the north. The road that it supposed to carry does not exist, but somebody with greater knowledge than I can chime in on this.

Posted July 13, 2016

Here are some pictures taken from 2001. The pics are of my friends when we took a trip to the Trussell. One can see the steep sides of the bridge approaches. The bridge is still there and probably will outlast our lifetimes.

Has anyone thought of this? The doomed bridge in Alabama (B.B. Comer Bridge) had a charity (http://www.comerbridge.org) that raised a good sum of money to try to save that bridge. Now that bridge is gone, but does the charity still have the money? Will they be willing to give the funds to be used with another bridge? I'm just wondering about this, because if there is another source of funding sitting around, it could still go to good--that is if its possible.

Added new page for the old Augusta/Turtle Creek bowstring bridge to accurately reflect its new location. See the following: http://bridgehunter.com/ky/henderson/bh72663/

Please add info as needed

Posted June 25, 2016

If a human was to look at google earth or maps that human will see that the truss has been kept and is sitting on the ground just south of the new bridge. Hopefully, someone will get curious and go confirm this, but for now, my word has to stand.
