In a "close it or lose it" move, the last Ohio National Road S-bridge in use was closed to save it from the abuse of heavy traffic related to fracking.

Well poop. There was no reason at all for any heavy traffic to use that bridge, when the next alignment of the road passed right next to it.

Denny,

 

Thanks for the item.  And Jim's point seems very well taken.

 

I'm glad you guys are keeping an eye on the Midwest! :) I want some good stuff left if I ever get there!! 

 

Dave

Back in 2006, I posted a picture of an 1833 stone bridge in Funkstown, MD, that just happened to show a large dump truck on the bridge. Someone saw the photo and contacted me for a higher resolution version in hopes of identifying the truck which clearly exceeded posted weight limits. I do not know if they were successful.
