They have been reaching out to Workin' Bridges for several bridges. The problem is no one was giving the kind of consulting needed for tgese jobs so hard to attract reuse. Workin' on it.

Safe from demolition? This is a metal truss bridge in Pennsylvania. I think not. That said, structurally, the bridge is in good condition and is feasible to preserve long-term.

This is a very interesting pony truss. I would hope it is safe from demolition...

One would think SuspensionStayed's 25,000 photos could have less cumbersome file names for you to link to.

Way to go, Flickr!

There are a lot more pictures and it would be nice if the webmaster could transfer them across.
