Yea, it is true. The phones are ringing off the hook at the controlled demolition contractors. There is not a recession for demo boys EH!!!!!
Its a historic cantilever truss bridge in the United States. Of course they want blow up and replace with slab of concrete. Soon, a passport or enhanced drivers license will be required to see a historic cantilever truss because the way things are going, pretty soon you will have to go to Canada if you want to see a historic cantilever truss.
I read an article online on the WVADOT saying this bridge is in the works to be replaced. Another UCEB coming, especially to a scenic area where it will blight it up for nature lovers, artists, and photographers. Unless West Virginia replaces it with another truss or "signature" type span instead, look for the lastest of the trend of "UGLY"!
Rebecca, the bridge is called the "Lilly Bridge" because it is built across the Bluestone Lake over or near the site of an inundated town called "Lilly". I am not sure but the lake was created after the bridge was opened, noting when the town of its namesake was flooded over.
Would like to know when this bridge was renamed th Lilly Bridge.
