Benwood Bridge saga, one year later

Who gets to tear down an old Ohio River bridge between West Virginia and Ohio -- and gets to sell the scrap metal -- will be decided by a judge in Idaho.

We passed that bridge yesterday and wondered what was happening with it. It's a lovely old thing, so ornate. What a pity it has to come down.

I work with someone at Channel 13 who is from that area. She says the neighbors want it to come down before it falls apart piece by piece, which has already started.

I can understand that. It's a hazard as it is, certainly. But what a shame it was allowed to get in that shape. Money, I guess. Restoration and even maintenance is costly.

Love your blog, btw.
