Listed in NBI as a stringer, so the 2008 gig was essentially a replacement bridge with the trusses now serving as non-functional eye candy. Not sure if the one set of trusses was lost then or sometime earlier.

Art,thanks for responding.I see the concrete span you're talking about.That's what I see now.Just wondering why now that they removed the truss.

George,

If you look closely at pic 1 you'll see that it still is a 4 span. 3 trusses and a slab. I suspect the span lengths have changed.

Regards,

Art S.
