RE: Saving a Treasure of a Bridge from State Destruction

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Here in Texas, TxDOT has a policy of trying to relocate such historic 
structures. I think there's even a Federal law involved (Title 23, U.S. Code, 
 Section 144).

Yeah, I know that's probably not gonna be good enough for the sorts of 
fanatical puritans in California (no offense intended, but some of you guys 
 are pretty intense about things the rest of us find trivial), but it's a 
good compromise.

Geez, you can even be a private citizen, and pay for the relocation yourself, 
 and it's YOURS.

(Anyone for a 1920s-era Pony Truss?
