Paul,

Quite the image, isn't it? I doubt if dealing with an event like this helped the longevity of the bridge.

In the angled picture there are clearly no supports for the bridge, but when it was demolished there were two piers like the modern bridge has. I would assume the piers became necessary by the semis that used to pound 52 back in the 60's and 70's, which might also account for its relatively short lifespan.

I would love to know the story behind this picture. In looking at the dirt road that is now U.S. 52, I wonder if this could be the opening of the bridge?
