I like lacing and built up members but these have some elegant, clean lines and their own aesthetic appeal. We should preserve them all!
Another example... And one of my favs:
Clark: Solid (ie rolled not built-up) beams on 1920s truss: Common? No. Other examples? Yes. Here are a few.
Unfortunately there are always going to be idiots with spray paint that haven't been raised to have any respect.
Based only on what I've seen, I have come to associate solid members with bridges built after the '20s. Are there other bridges from this time period with similar construction?
Please add more photos of this beauty!
This is truly an Interesting bridge!
This is a real beauty!
The center "Upper-chord" is very unique and even more unusual! Surprising to see it laced considering how all the other main components are solid members. An effort to keep the weight down I presume.
Hats off to the county and state preserving this gem!!
