Steel Culverts Under Bridge

The construction of the Powley Place Bridge was interesting. It was a series of "I" beams, with half culverts laid on the beams, with a layer of concrete poured on top. It seems like a nice design, except where the culverts where rusted through, and the concrete was cracking off the bridge.

Culverts Gone, Exposed Concrete

Here is an example of the deterioration of the bridge as seen from it's underside. Concrete was cracking as steel was gone from holding it up. Bridge will eventually have to be replaced.

Grasses

In Powley Place. It's not all marshy, in part because Mr. Powley when he tried to farm this place, installed tiles that dried this area out enough to make a small field suitable for farming.
