Mr. Graham:

Thanks for tackling the to-do list. I am glad that folks like you and the Haleys are able to clean up some of these pages.

As for the term MOB, it stands for Mail Order Bridges. They have been the subject of many a debate and flame war on Bridgehunter. Some argue that these bridges are far nicer than bland slabs. Others argue that these bridges are an insult to true historic bridges that could have been recycled for pedestrian use.

That is the story on MOBs in a nutshell.

I noticed this was on the "to-do" list... It is a bowstring pony truss, built by Steadfast Bridge Co of Fort Payne, AL. in 1996. It is also referred to on this website as an "MOB". (I'm not sure this bridge type is appropriate for this website.)
