I've long been curious about the asymmetry of decoration on the western railing of this bridge. I assume that it dates from 1913 (or perhaps 1930, based on the photo posted by Brian Smith:
San Francisquito Creek Bridge - Date stamp - west side - from creek - Photo taken by Brian Smith in February 2011
and that when the bridge was widened in 1955 the eastern railing was completely replaced.
I've attached 2 photos. The San Mateo County end has a carved stone or cast concrete abutment cap whereas the Santa Clara County end is devoid of decoration. Was this always so or was this commented upon by the press when the bridge that incorporated these details was finished?
It would make an interesting bit of history.
Replaced in ~2012
I would like to know how much clearance there is for a boat to pass under this bridge.
On the National Register of Historic Places..girders improve the strength and life of the span. Called a Bendix Moment Method..like a suspension bridge at the speed of concrete.
This bridge was near my old bus stop in the 1950s & 1960s near the Essler homestead (100' NE) and the coal patch of Boxcartown (200'North). It is also located 50' West of the former Essler School located between SR4033 & Lyons Run. ( school gone prior to 1952).
Any on with with any photos of Boxcartown and it's surrounds, please contact me. firstname.lastname@example.org
This bridge is being traveled by heavy Quarry Dump trucks, heavy 18 wheel trucks, couple size 18 wheel open top dump trucks as well as cars.
This bridge as well as Valleybrook Rd should not have heavy trucks coming across this bridge or driving on the residential road . Any suggestions?
I am a home owner of a historical home near this bridge on Valleybrook Rd, Chester Heights PA 19017
Not much of a notable bridge, but it's on the road tht takes you to some great fishing!
I own a cabin at the end of Pine Flats road. "Camp #19-C-118", The Black Diamond. I went up to cut the grass about 1 month ago and the road was excavated with very largs gocks. What is up with that? I made it back but will not try it again. My tires were all sliced up on the sidewalls. Is it going to stay this way. I can't get to my cabin! Can somebody please give me a call on what's going on. 570-992-3105 Thank you Very Much. Domenico
Been watching the work progress daily on the way to work via Central Ave. Wondering when the work is projected to be completed. I miss using this bridge for an alternate way home (via the scenic route).
its getting fixed
True coordinates are 33.400572,-84.584566. The current map location shows it is about a mile northwest of the actual location
The map does not show the bridge on SR 34.
How did this road become known as "Brunnerdale Road?" Where did the name come from?
In 1992 it was recommended that this bridge be replaced because of substantial deficiencies.
This bridge is in emergency need of culvert replacement that convey storm water from east and west bound storm water ditches.
The culvert on the northeast side is completely destroyed, and water is building at an alarming rate, and what water is being drained is going around the destroyed culvert and aggravating an already critical scour situation.
In addition, this bridge has had significant traffic increase since 2008. A "dirt pit" has been opened east of Cow Pen Slough. 20 yard fully load dump trucks cross this bridge all day every day. There has been a national veteran's cemetery built on the east side of the bridge.
Semi trucks delivering crypts cross this bridge frequently, along with semi trucks delivering goods from Arcadia to the west coast of Fl.
SR 72 in this area has a dedicated east and west bound bike lane. However, at the bridge the bike lane is unavailable do to the existing deck width. This creates a significant safety issue for bicycle traffic.
The drainage culvert(s) mentioned above are submerged by about six feet. This is due to unmaintained silting issues at the slough.
The alternate route is recorded as the north entrance to Myakka State Park, which crosses the Myakka River. If Cow Pen Slough is flooded to the point that the bridge is unsafe, then it is fair to assume the north exit bridge at Myakka will be closed as well due to flooding.
Bridge is now out. Closed by SC on June 4, 2013. 2 support pilings have been washed out in the riverbed.
How do the ditches get their names, and what if any sort of significance do they carry?
BRIDGE CLOSED due to multiple structural red flags, July 2013.
Scheduled to be replaced in 2014
This is the replacement for a 1927 bridge: http://bridgehunter.com/wv/fayette/bh38116/
You're right. The bridge looks horrible now. There is something like a large PVC pipe sticking up near the bridge. I don't know what that PVC pipe is for, but it looks bad. I have a lot of memories at that bridge at Black Creek. Growing up it was a wonderful swimming hole that me, my family, and my friends loved. I remember the water being so cold and the water current flowing so fast. Now I guess the property is owned by someone who doesn't want anyone using the waterhole as there are signs that read "No Trespassing". It makes me feel sad to see such a wonderful swimming hole being unused and being left in such a poor condition. My husband and I drove out this way yesterday. I asked my husband to stop the car so I could get a closer look at the creek. I'm glad I still have my wonderful memories of Black Creek, but sad that the creek is not being used for families to enjoy swimming and that the bridge has an ugly PVC pipe attached to it. Wish someone would change the way it looks now and make it beautiful once again. :)
Actual Coordinates 30.405406,-81.75364
If this is structurally deficient, the neighborhood had better let the NYSDOT fix this bridge without interference from the anti-highway zealots.
with all that heavy truck traffic --- how much longer can that bridge take it? it is the roughest bridge i ever drove over.
Construction for replacing this bridge began May 2013 the old Bridge was removed. There is been no work for the past six weeks. Scheduled completion is August 9. This date cannot be met. Construction on the new bridge has not even began. Road is been closed for three months and will be Indefinitely. This causes major inconvenience for people who travel on this road, including a public school bus. Safety is also a concern as there is no bank protection, shoring nor non removeable barricades to keep children out from this creek.
"1.0 MI E. OF LIVINGSTON C[OUNTY]" seems to be the minor stream crossing at N 37.03310 W 88.20798. In addition, a 1955 topo shows that US 62 had not yet been built at the location of this NBI record (which is Poplar Creek, not Flat Creek): http://ims.er.usgs.gov/gda_services/download?item_id=5294364&quad=Eddyville&state=KY&grid=15X15&series=Map%20GeoPDF
its getting worked on

Please explain why they call this "Germantown" Road?
MaineDOT announced today that they are going to permanently remove the lower vehicle deck of this bridge, as it would be cost prohibitive to repair or replace it.
How high off the water is the main bridge deck?
Actual Coordinates should be:
This bridge was NOT built in 1956, but had its creosote soaked block decking replaced by concrete then. This span may be the last remaining section of the original Belle Isle Michigan bridge build between 1887 and 1889, and was destroyed by fire in April of 1915. The 1887 Belle Isle bridge also had the same roadbed of creosote soaked wood blocks. The Belle Isle bridge was replaced by the current bridge in 1923.
Couple of questions: How did you determine that CSX owns this bridge??
What does  mean after Owner: Railroad ?
What does Recommended work  mean?
is there a way to narrow a search more specifically as to locale? wishing that the locations were designated as to town, making it easier for a rank amateur like myself to find a bridge. or am i missing something?
It has massive amounts of horrible graffiti all over and under the bridge.
It's the Des Plaines River, not Desplaines. Better known as the Ruby Street Bridge. It was most recently rehabilitated between July and November of 2012. I don't know whether/how many steel beams were replaced, so there may be some previous historic mill marks missing from the original 1930s bridge.
It's the Des Plaines River, *not* Desplaines, better known as the Jefferson Street Bridge in Joliet.
For what purpose was the Ocklawaha River Bridge built? Why the height, and span?
The map icon for this bridge is wrong. It should be closer to 30.319544,-89.322638
has been replaced recently--2011-12
Location should be:
why do they call it the Floating Bridge? did it float at one time? how did it work?
Bridge removed and precast concrete arch culvert installed for Rails to Trails. Grade crossing. 2013
Replaced in 2012
This is the worst intersection design on the face of the planet. It's dangerous because it's confusing to motorists. It denies naturally intuitive acces to businesses. A motorist exiting from 35E does not know to procede/turn south on the service road to access the now closed gas station because, despite the signage, the access road looks like a south bound entrance ramp to the freeway. To make matters worse, there is not a left turn lane off of west bound hwy 14 to get into the businesses. This intersection design caused business owners to claim bankruptcy, employees to lose their jobs and motorists to be confused. At the very least, a left turn lane should be created to allow access to the gas station, Dairy Queen and other businesses.
Correct location should be at coordinates:
I am very familiar with these bridges and although I will agree with the aesthetic description of these bridges, the landscape surrounding them is very beautiful.
The corrected location is on the bridgehunter site.
This bridge does not cross the Yellow River. The waterway is Sweetwater Creek.
the bridge is geting fixed

Yep today May 23 2013 the north span collapsed, bridge closed indefinitely.
At just after 7:00pm this evening (23-May-2013) the northernmost section of the Skagit River Bridge collapsed into the Skagit River. Why wasn't this bridge replaced over a decade ago?
This Bridge should have been condemned in 1992! Why did WSDOT spend $1.3 million on an unnecessary road at Sharps Corner, instead of repairing this bridge!
THIS BRIDGE IS IN BAD SHAPE
There are two bridges at that location, but I do not see the old Woodson Bridge listed. It was built in 1896 and sits beside the new concrete bridge, but since it is one of the few suspension bridges left, I would have thought it would be listed. Or have I just overlooked it?
Some of the information posted is not correct. The trestle is/was a railroad trestle. Originally, it was on the N&W mainline into downtown Lynchburg. The line just north of this trestle was abandoned at the end of 1964 (or early 1965) to near the Hollin's Mill tunnel. The trestle itself was abandoned by the railroad [NS]in 2000.
There is no way the traffic volume on this was 16,000; perhaps this is the street traffic below?
There are seemingly hundreds of potential waterways spanned by Interstate 10 in the desert between Indio & Phoenix. Each of them is named, rather improbably in my estimation. Were all of those washes and ditches named before they were spanned and the NBI established, or was the naming process something that happened concurrently with their construction, OR subsequently after the inventory and inspection conventions were mandated?
Sorry I was thinking of the Parkdale Bridge. Very near by . That bridge is the one that was removed and blocked off .
This Bridge is gone. and road is blocked off by the City of Dallas. No Traffic or Bridge!
34°54'24.55" N 117°05'40.93" W
this is the correct location of this bridge
How did the ditch gets its name? Thanks.
Leave the damned bridge alone! It doesn't need to be widened!
I am wondering if the name Linkay is incorrect, it could be Lindsay. My Lindsay lived near Troy, SC which was once known as the 96th district, then Abbeville, SC. Later McCormick, SC. My Lindsays arrived from Belfast N. Ireland to Charleston, SC in 1767. Thank you for the map and hope I have been helpful.
This creek is named "WILLIAMS CREEK", not "WILLIAMSON CREEK"
This should be "HINDS BRANCH" rather than "HINES BRANCH"
Piers show heavy rust erosion. The seams on road surface
Are gapped and uneven. The neighbor near bridge continuly attempting
to fill or otherwise reduce bump, b
ump noise from vehicles.
The location should be:
According to Google Maps this is not Kirkwall St, but Jefferson Pl where the bridge is located.
The location should be:
This is actually 150ft e/o Jefferson Pl not Kirkwall St (according to Google Maps)
The location of this bridge I believe should be at
Which is over Flatirons Crossing 0.1 miles e/o Coalton Rd.
They might want to update how many cars go across that bridge.
Hope the people who designed bridge have retired! Because I fuss everytime it floods. (We have to detour to HWY 120.)
Lamoreaux Drive does not cross Indian Mill Creek in Kent County. Lamoreaux Drive crosses Mill Creek in Kent County. The two streams are not the same. Mill Creek flows into the Grand River East of Comstock Park. Indian Mill Creek flows into the Grand River South of Ann Street in Grand Rapids
Your site also lists the West River Drive bridge as going over Indian Mill creek and is mistaken along the same lines.
Not trying to find fault, just trying to help with accuracy.
Who owns this bridge and how was it determined who owns it.
It is shown on the map of 1916 on T719 ( Drehersville road )
After 1990 on the map its shows the Borough road going over it. The number plate is missing from the side wall.
The highway dept. would like to do some repair work on this bridge however the structure is on the National Register of Historic Bridges and therefore options are very limited. In addition, the MnDNR has plans to replace the dam due to its age and condition, therefore the bridge would be replaced as part of the same project. The cost of this project in 2009 was 12 million dollars. The roadway is in the Lake Bronson State Park and is a very scenic route with a speed limit of only 40 mph. The bridge is signed properly for single lane traffic. A bike path crosses this bridge also on a steel deck mounted on the upstream side, this was designed for the MnDNR.
It's being closed beginning on Thursday, April 4th 2013 for a year to be repaired.
This Bridge was replaced between 2006 and 2009 by Golden State Bridge, Inc. The bridge rating you show completed in 2010 is obviously in error - the bridge condition currently is excellent.
What this and the parallel bridge needs is to be replaced with bridges that don't have central pylons, which create short left-turn provisions on Route 112.
Still needs to be replaced for a wider Horse Block Road.
The middle lane was meant for a potential railroad line, but could still be used for a High Occupancy Vehicle lane.
This bridge has a name, specifically the "Brittan Alexander Bridge." See the link below.
