I agree on keeping anything if the railings look like some sort of concrete balustrade. Anything with a metal railing or a straight up concrete slab is almost warranted of deletion.

Robert, I agree, overpass bridges with original ornamental railings like this are OK in my book, even on HistoricBridges.org, and certainly here.

This is one of those bridges that appears on the lowest rated page mainly because it likely got besieged by HSB. I would vote to keep this bridge, and a few others like it.

I will try to find as many NBI structures as I possibly can. I have been doing it on modern bridges that have replaced older bridges. So that way I know what the old bridge used to be and when it was replaced.
