Flood of 2019: IAIS/Rock Island 1900 Double-Lattice Truss near Booneville, IA

(Bridge Hunter; no Historic Bridges; John MarvigIAIS Plans (but you need a login to access the info!); Satellite)

This is a win-win posting. It not only shows the impact of the 2019 flood, it documents a double-lattice truss bridge that is soon going to be replaced. Note in the satellite image that the two eastern spans are normally over land. In these photos, water is under all four spans.

[The river is flowing fast. At least there are no ice slabs on it.]
A street view shows us a more normal river level.

I did not include the last two images because I recognized them as a copy of John Marvig's work.
