Here are some shots of the old Main Street Bridge in Taylor.   This took Main Street over the railroad tracks.   These were shot 09.03.06.   The builders plate says either 1904 or 1934 - you can not make it out with all the paint over it.

In any case, it is an old bridge, Girder and Concrete construction, two pretty big spans.

You can see the deteriorating concrete in this shot.  Some of the guys that worked on the Railroad said it looked real bad when you went under it.
