Didn't get there in time. Second newer plate had already been torched off.

Posted August 26, 2017

That's kind of what I thought too. The piers looked much older than the bridge.

Posted August 22, 2017

Talk about lucky timing. Sign at the beginning of road says "Road closed Sept 5th for bridge replacement"

And they let people like this have a license to drive a potential 80,000 lb vehicle? I work at a lumber company that receives truck shipments daily and this is the state of the trucking industry these days. There people driving these things I wouldn't trust to mow my lawn let alone drive my truck.

Marvig, you son of a..... You beat me too it!! (kidding or course) Congrats!!

Not sure of the prospects for this bridge. New bridge being built beside it now (2016)

Posted August 28, 2016

Description is absolutely correct. There's short sections of earth embankment between the main B&O Potomac River as well as the Potomac St overpass. All 3 are separate structures when you're standing there.

Don't get me wrong. If there's an interesting painting, drawing or art of some kind of a a particular bridge. By all means post it. THATS interesting. But 2,3,5,10 of each. If you look at the updates page anymore all you find is 1000's of one persons drawings. One or two of each is plenty.

Posted January 27, 2016

Enough already with the frigging drawings.

Posted December 6, 2015

Yikes! We drove across it when we took photos in June 2015. Didn't feel or sound unstable.

Posted September 12, 2015

Went through here in Sept 2015 and indeed all the spans are sitting in various places on the NW hillside all intact.

Posted September 11, 2015

Stamp on piers shows 1884. Bridge appears newer, any input from the experts?
