Heisson Bridge
Posted February 26, 2015, by Mike Goff (michael [dot] goff [at] hotmail [dot] com)

Home Sweet Home!

I see Mike Garland has made it out to my "home" bridges. I grew up and my dad still lives amount a half mile from these two bridges. I have spent many a hot summer's days playing in the river at and near this spot.

The construction of the new arch bridge was one of the key elements that lead me on my journey to become a civil/bridge engineer.

Nice work Mike!
