It appears that most of the bridge is welded together.

I drove by there today.There was a row of no trespassing signs along the sidewalk so I didn't walk up to it to get better pictures, sorry.

George, I had a very similar thought--Ford's new 8x8 concept! Ha!

I know this is a screwup with the street view camera but I can't resist.How do they drive the ford F-150 pickup truck in the street view with 8 wheels?

Hmmmm. Well...it looks like that facility has been there since about the mid-late 50s (the facility is definitely not there in the 1950 image, it *might* be in the 1955, it definitely is in the 1958).

That truss has...possibly been at that walkway since at least 1958. I'm not sure that it's in the 1955 image, and there's a lot of shadows in the 1958 image - especially of the nearby CSX truss. But, it does look like it might be there at that point (58).

So...if I'm right, that means 60-some years on this walkway. That alone would be historic, yes?

Haste makes waste on bridge trips. I photographed the nearby railroad bridge main spans from a boat launch on the other side, and never noticed this bridge because I didn't take any photos of the railroad bridge from this spot. I cannot tell if it is historic/riveted or not in the Google Street view but am adding it just in case.
