WACR - North Branch Winooski River Bridge
Posted March 26, 2015, by Jeff Laughlin (jeff [dot] laughlin [at] gmail [dot] com)

Just talked to a contractor inspecting the bridge today... They said it's been deemed unsound and the train is no longer allowed to cross it. They were assessing the damage. They said they wanted the job of fixing it.
