Crossing the 23 ton bridge
#1
The bridge in front of the house is 23 tons, I believe.  Its sufficiency is rated at 70.  I am not really sure exactly what sufficiency is, but I read on the state site that it has to do with serviceability, use and how essential it is.

It is pretty long at over 200 feet.  I think it is about 75 feet down.

The 75 feet down is from the top of the coach to the interstate below.

"Bridge sufficiency is is calculated, based 55% on the structural evaluation, 30% on the obsolescence of its design, and 15% on its importance to the public. As of 2008, a score of 80 or less is required for federal repair funding, and 50 or less for federal replacement funding." per Wikipedia National Bridge Inventory.

23 tons is pretty low for a Newell newer than mid-1990's.
