Good news roundup for September
Saturday, September 11, 2010
- The subject of much debate, the historic 1921 Pennsylvania truss bridge at Healdsburg, California, will be saved and rehabilitated to continue carrying traffic.
- Plans to rehabilitate the Murray Morgan Bridge in Tacoma, Washington, a vertical lift span, are still on track.
- Alabama is about to get its own Historic Bridge Park. The first project, an 1882 bowstring truss, was relocated to its new home at Northport, Alabama, with a dedication set for October.
- Carrollton, Georgia, is rehabilitating a wooden railroad overpass instead of replacing it. It's a win-win situation as the rehabilitation is expected to be much less expensive than a UCEB replacement, while also avoiding some red tape.
