Tony,

I think I am missing something here. The last photo of this structure (#12) has a polygonal top chord and the Lower Pollard Flat Bridge has a flat top chord.

The last picture is certainly of this bridge.

Maybe I missed something else or action has already been taken.

Thanks,

Mike

The last pic added is not of this bridge but is of the Lower Pollard Flat Bridge...
