The curved piers are original to the 1888 N&W bridge. The V&T bridge was the original bridge on the current NS bridge. I have corrected the posting.

Posted February 22, 2017

Is the bracing here note worthy, I do not believe I have seen this before. Is it acting as an outrigger or a vertical? Or both?

Posted February 22, 2017

I am guessing this bridge was not built in 1932. Probably the original bridge here was built in 1932. This looks to be a welded MOB.

They looked brand new, right out of the box.

Thanks Nathan. I have just not encountered many Pratts that looked like this.

Is there a sub category of Pratt for this bridge?

Royce

Posted February 16, 2017

I have changed this status back to open. I do not know if they are going to take it down but as of 2/17/2017 it remains open with no work being done on it.

The photo is of the correct bridge on the access road. The caption for the photo is incorrect.

Posted January 24, 2017

thinking this was not a 1,000,000 dollar bridge

Should we add these?
Posted December 15, 2016

I like them. I guess I would base the decision on how many are currently left and how quickly they are being replaced.

Bridge Comment
Posted December 15, 2016

Thank you Mike and Nathan. I thought it was more likely a tee beam than a slab. Did not think of a rigid frame though.

Posted December 8, 2016

Is there a name for this type of truss design?

Posted December 8, 2016
Posted November 18, 2016

Looks like a beam bridge not a truss

Posted October 21, 2016

No bridge here
