Thanks for visiting these bridges and posting the photos! Good to know the truss bridge is high and dry, it really is a spectacular bridge.
I checked. That truss bridge is fine. I drove across it,took pics, posted them, everything. The messed up bridge is Laurel Ave. Built around 1990. There is a mill next to it where a wall of it has completely collapsed. Give me an e-mail address and i'll send it to you.
That doesn;t look like the bridge that they showed on the news. It looks like a 70's steel stringer (UCEB style). I don;t have a lot of road access...all bridges are basically shut down, at least the good historic ones. I have to meet with bosses, but I did get a railroad bridge. I'll try to get more.
Let us all know what you find and post any photos you get!
I hope the bridge in Coventry that is about to collapse isn't the Phoenix column truss bridge: http://www.bridgehunter.com/ri/kent/8420/ since that would be a devastating loss. Hopefully you can check on this bridge.
I travel a lot...especially to disaster sites. I am in Warwick, RI right now for work. The flooding here is crazy. There is a bridge in Coventry that the collapse is imminent, but I can't find out which one it is. They have I-95 shut down in areas, and traffic is a nightmare..I hope to get some of these bridges while I am here if I have the chance...
With the flooding currently in progress, this bridge can be seen on television with water rushing around it and over its deck.
