A Photo a Week Challenge: Bridges

We don’t have any big bridges near us, but we do have bridges.


River bridges on every road.

Railroad bridges.

Highway overpasses.

    1. We also have a bunch of pretty old ones. Some of our (crumbling) stone bridges go back a couple of hundred years. I’d like to think it’s sentiment that keeps them from fixing them, but i think they just don’t want to spend the money.

    1. On those sad occasions when a crumbling bridge has gotten too dangerous for cars or people, we learn just how important those bridges are. There was on that crossed the Blackstone near Milford, one of our larger towns. It took them three years to finish it and one of them, you had to drive 5 miles out of the way (very back road driving, too) to find another bridge. Almost all our towns have a river running through it. Old towns. Twisting river. Cheap government.

    1. When every town in your area is on the river and in many towns, it quite literally runs along Main Street and the railroad tracks, without the bridges, you can’t get to the other side of town … or the rest of the valley. I like the stone ones best.
