Glad to see that the site got pictures of this before it was replaced.

Also, since I don't think I've complimented you on the work yet: You're doing a damn good job Daniel. Keep up the good work.

I have heard reports in the past that this bridge will be removed, with the intersection becoming an at-grade crossing with a traffic signal because the of the low clearance.
