I can almost visualize a "Hey, hold my beer and watch this" episode playing out at this location. ;-)

It's all in fun my friend... Though I do think Nathan's reaction is priceless!

Ha! In all honesty, I had never seen a bridge with an underpass thru a corrugated drainage pipe like this, and I'm 40 years old. There's a signal light on each side of the underpass to indicate when you can go thru. But I realize that it's sort of the redneck of bridges. I just didn't want it to feel left out.

Yeah, these types of structures are interesting and rare...cough cough... Here are a few from my home state to demonstrate their rarity…

My apologies to anyone who feels insulted.

Yeah, it's a pretty neat bridge/tunnel combo.
