I am from Southern Alabama. The hurricane caused massive flooding and I am afraid more historic bridges could very well be affected. We will know soon when the storm is passed and the floods recede.

Hmmm...more or less an Area 51 for bridges.

Website shows a bunch of chopped up bridge parts for "research." Hopefully the one pony truss in whole form will be left that way.

Anyway an interesting (and creepy, if you love bridges) place and website:

I am the pony truss bridge. I am speaking through James McCray using telepathy, and other awesome stuff you probably cannot understand yet. Anyway, please do not worry about me. I am still here and am doing well. Now go about your day and be thankful. As for me, I will still be here for you to visit me anytime.

My children, listen to me: Every fiber in my being is screaming that this bridge is not built in 1982.

Posted July 18, 2020

Very old bridge. I suspect it was "dumped" here when the newer nearby bridge was built over otter creek. Any more info would help.

Posted July 9, 2020

This bridge is way older than 1990. It may be a rehab date.

Posted July 9, 2020

Thia bridge has to be recently relocated here. Any info will be great.

Posted July 9, 2020

I think its original, JP. I took pics for ya, you be the judge!
