And engineers hired to assess the condition of bridges often declare the need for replacement because they want the job of designing the new bridge, a more lucrative contract than repairing and boosting the load capacity of a historic span.
Historic bridges are important touchstones in our state’s industrial and transportation history, and on top of it all they are lovely to look at.
Historic Landmarks wants to help preserve landmark bridges for the impressive loveliness of their engineering, their long record of service, their sprawl-resisting qualities—and so all of us can see the natural Hoosier beauty we’re crossing.
