Given the proximity of the Route 15 Bridge this appears to be nothing more than the absolute waste of taxpayer dollars. The old bridge could be rehabilitated for a fraction of the replacement cost.

Haven't awarded one of these in a good minute...

If anybody happens to have a 200-ft wide creek or gully or the like, this bridge is now "for sale."

I wish the road departments in my part of the state would look into this. Whenever a historic bridge in this neck of the woods is replaced, we're blessed with an ugly cookie-cutter concrete excuse for a bridge and the old ones are completely destroyed/demolished when all is said and done.
