gaping wounds and punctured tires

Keeping up the bridge at Beaver Hole must be a challenge.  The wear and tear on this structure is catching up to York County quickly.  This photo was taken March 17, 2011.

Just two months later and several fierce storms the side of the bridge looked like this..

and my coffee cup had room to spare!!  The county is aware of the condition of this bridge and has emailed me that it will be repaired this summer.  I am hoping its early summer versus late as the mortar and now stone, is just falling away.

big bread, little fish

 While standing on the bridge, feeding the fish, I noticed the concrete was eroding away where the road and bridge connect.  Upon closer inspection I see the rebar is sticking out of the crack.  Not just showing, but actually sticking out with pointed edges, waiting to puncture a tire.

As you can see in the picture, the crack is large and the metal sticking out is plenty long enough to puncture a tire.

Where the Beavers roam

Travelers on the Bull Road beware….if the bridge doesn’t collapse on you, it may just take a bite of your tire instead!

On a good note…..someone loves Judy!

    I’m glad you posted this with pics – my boyfriend rides his motorcycle out there, and this could have been dangerous!

Go ahead...take a swing. I'll duck and listen.
