Fire Destroys Newberry Rd. Bridge Near Durand.

Unread post by Jochs »

The old, historic Newberry Rd. Bridge, a combination metal and wooden trestle bridge, which spanned the CN Flint Sub west of Durand in Shiawassee County this morning caught fire and collapsed down onto the tracks this morning. This bridge was a popular spot for railfans to photograph overhead shots of trains.

Well that sucks. I wonder if they'll build a new bridge, or just leave Newberry split in two.
