Pinto Creek Bridge

Happened to cross this bridge on 03/26/18. Stopped to take a look at it and walked over to see the plaque. Structure won an AISC prize back in the late 40s. I see there are plans to replace this structure; unlikely a new span will have the elegance of this one. There's another one like it further west on US 60 on the downhill run into Superior.
