CR 178 Bridge
Posted April 11, 2015, by Royce and Bobette Haley (roycehaley111 [at] yahoo [dot] com)

OK so this is awkward. In doing the to do list I came across this bridge that was being called a pony truss. It is evident that it is indeed a Through truss not of the pony variety. So after I went and said don't change other peoples bridge names I just did it. Sorry. However the bridge name was "CR 178 pony truss" so I felt it really needed to be changed. Please forgive my hypocrisy.
