Butternut Hill Road Bridge
Posted November 8, 2016, by Michael Quiet (mquiet [at] gmail [dot] com)

Missed this one by about 17 years...should've known those sufficiency ratings were too high for a historic truss bridge.

Replaced with a modern welded polygonal warren pony...pretty standard in its design and implementation for this era.

I haven't been able to confirm yet, but there's a reasonable chance this bridge is in storage somewhere. On the '98 Historic Truss plan for the state this bridge was listed for relocation/preservation use. Hopefully that's what ended up happening!
