SurelyShirley: Put it on craigslist; someone will pick it up.
EvilEgg: Ugly generic bridge, unless it was the first of the type I see no value in preserving it for the ages,
Hoopy Frood: If the bridge is in a condition where it can be maintained in perpetuity, why is Illinois spending money on a new bridge?
SpdrJay: It would look cool in the living room, but I think my landlord might complain.
mikaloyd: EvilEgg: Ugly generic bridge, unless it was the first of the type I see no value in preserving it for the ages,looks like we have us a bridge expert in the opening comment.
Strobeguy: Up until the 80s it had a metal grating road bed that made a really weird noise as you drove over.
LrdPhoenix: Hoopy Frood: If the bridge is in a condition where it can be maintained in perpetuity, why is Illinois spending money on a new bridge?If 14.4kbaud modems and phone lines are still in a condition where they can be used to connect to the internet, why are you spending money on cable internet service (or DSL, or fiber, etc.)?
leevis: Too bad they couldn't try something like that with the nine-span in Hammond, IN. They said it might have once been the longest bridge over land in the world at one point. They started tearing it down about a month ago.
