Cedar River Trail Bridge #1
Posted July 7, 2019, by Robert Banel (bob [dot] banel [at] aol [dot] com)

I have always wonder about this bridge's eastern concrete support when viewed from beneath the bridge from the bank of the Cedar River. It has a tilt to it that was was compensated by a wedge shaped concrete pour where the metal truss rests on. Does anyone know the history of this or have a theory that might explain this. Perhaps a flood was responsible for the tilting. I'll will try later to take and post a photo of this strangely engineered repair. Thank you.
