To reopen a thread from a few years ago....
The measurements on this page appear to be the NBI data for the NYSW overpass over Clinton Street a few blocks to the south, so we have the data for one bridge and photos and street views for another on the same page.
Unless someone has a better idea, I think we should convert this page entirely over to the Clinton Street overpass (as I believe NBI data cannot be un-linked) and create a new page for the Onondaga Street overpass, including moving the newspaper photo to said new page.
I created a new page for Onondaga - can delete it if someone else has a better plan: https://bridgehunter.com/ny/onondaga/bh98428/
Dana, its definitely not just you, the county maps are unreliable for confirming if a bridge is already on this website... hopefully James Baughn can fix that problem.
I deleted the page I made, so just leave your page up. I only was trying to add the bridge cause I found the record-breaking span length to be of interest. Although I have no idea if that length REALLY was record-breaking.
There is some weird bug on Bridgehunter in which some bridges are NOT shown on the county clickable Google map. This may be why many contributors post duplicate bridges by mistake. This bridge for example did not show up on the county map browser.
Also I have no idea where the measurements shown on this page came from. According to a local news article, this bridge was claimed to be the longest clear-span double-track through plate girder span in the USA when completed. Design: 127 foot span through plate girder, consisting of 130 foot long by 12 foot tall girders. Validity of these length claims is uncertain.
Collapse of approach span railing took place in 2018.
May not have RR correct, this bridge partially collapsed yesterday
