Yes with that nondescript thing we are standing on, I had no idea they were going to blow it up, I would have been there
They have another one on the chopping block in Utica IL next year sometime, I won't miss that one .
This thread is good stuff. I'm somewhat of a bridge aficionado myself and for a second there at the beginning, I thought I was in Vermont. No better way to be able to stop easily, pull over, and snap some pics unless it's by either riding a bicycle or walking. I enjoyed the thread and agree that traveling, seeing and appreciating the things that are around us that some take for granted is one of my favorite aspects of being in s cycle. Thanks for keeping this alive otherwise I'd not have seen it.
My wife works for a physical therapy company (that shall remain nameless) and she was talking to a patient about the bridge coming down.
He happens to live in Spring Valley and as a surprise gift he grabbed this bolt out of the rubble for her , very cool IMO
We lost this one earlier this year, It was one of those steel grate types that give you that squirrely steering as you look 60 + feet down with low railings to boot.
86 years old , over the Mississippi in Savanna IL. Dam shame..
