Woodhead Street Overpass
Posted September 15, 2016, by James (Jwwoodham [at] aol [dot] com)

I was looking through the condition reports of the several arch bridges on SW Fwy. that are only 10 -12 years old and seem perfect yet their conditions are not rated highly. I'm no experts but I wonder why they wouldn't achieve higher scores. They have light traffic.
