Many of the Nebraska listings have bad NBI data, GPS about 1/2 to 1 mile off, roads not named (this combination making it a challenge for bridges located nearby to each other), most of them have what appear to be incorrect "default" dates, etc. As I have time and explore the listing, I have been fixing the GPS locations to best of my ability and noting any obvious replacements, but have not been editing any other data. I would assume 90%+ of build dates for truss bridges in Nebraska provided by NBI are incorrect.

It's a pony truss, I changed it.

While NBI says it's a through truss, it sure looks like a pony on satellite view
