Why are you reporting this puzzle?

This lenticular truss bridge, at Livermore Falls in New Hampshire, has been allowed to sit abandoned, and one span allowed to collapse. This bridge is as rare as or rarer than any of this state's many preserved covered bridges. A little research reveals that this may be one of the last bridges of this type in the country. It was built in 1885 over Pemigewasset River and closed to traffic in 1959.

Parts of it are missing Willy which probably makes it look odd.
Kate, I realize we can't save/keep everything. And resources are much more limited in this poor economy but it would be very sad to lose this unique structure.

Beautiful photo & fun jigsaw, Beekay, thanks! It's sad that something as interesting as the bridge should be allowed to fall apart!!

What a strange bridge

Beekay

No one is allowed access to it and it wouldn't be safe at all. Some of the end sections have been removed and fencing erected to prevent people from going onto it.

that's an amazing bridge, beekay, and a wonderful site. is it still okay to walk on at least?

Beekay

It was for vehicle traffic smllpkg. The train tracks run along the right hand side of the river when looking at the photo. Actually I showed you a photo of them here ... http://www.jigidi.com/created.php?id=XFRLBVMQ

I would be interested in seeing it in the spring when the river is high from melting snow Gracie.

Most welcome Lunie.

It is a shame that people are injured by being foolish and reckless smllpkg but it would be a shame to lose the bridge.

From the deaths and injuries that have occurred, I'd say it needs to come down.

I'm guessing this once carried trains across the Pemigewasset?

Beekay

I've never seen one like this before. I do wish they would preserve it but I imagine it would be very pricey ...if it was even possible to do so!
