What happened to this Big Bridge and why is it no longer there? , someone needs to replace the one that was currently there with one that was previously there except make it a quad lane Bridge instead of a double lane Bridge

Yes, UCEB's are boring. Plenty of neat trusses I crossed as a kid are now those "ugly flat concrete things"...

This bridge was rather interesting because the two center spans were around 200 feet, and the end spans were around 150 feet or so. UCEBs sure do make long drives boring!
