Miyagi, Japan's Bridges: Kitakami River Bridge (9)

March 2012 (38.547 Degrees, 141.423 Degrees) Kitakami Bridge
A last few photos of the Kitakami Bridge. The truss spans that remained were still attached to HDPE-wrapped cable restrainers between the floor beams and the piers.
The photo below shows a plaque giving the dates for design and construction of this bridge. I wonder if the Ministry is planning on replacing it?  In the previous photos we saw construction equipment and activity just upstream.

Starting tomorrow, we'll head north on Route 45 to look at some more tsunami-damaged and repaired bridges.
