  • Truck rips back off at the 11foot8 bridge

    This truck damaged the top of the box and ripped the back off on April 4th, 2014. This was crash #72 since April 2008. In the 72 months I have been recording the overhead crashes here, the total number of overhead crashes is now exactly 72. That does include the 2 hay trucks but not any damage caused indirectly by the height of the bridge, like the truck running over the stop sign turning onto Peabody St. And, again, I […]

  • May 2013 – new signage and another crash

    On May 8th this year, a crew from the Dept. of Transportation installed new signage at the 11foot8 bridge to improve the visibility of the structure (the crash beam).
