Nope, it was the Mothman operating it.He flipped me the bird as he floated by...

Coincidentally, he may have been drinking Capetian Morgan also.

LOL, I hope the Mothman doesn't have a lawyer. I might get sued for defamation of character.

Ah well I tried, but at least 2 people thought it was funny even if I did spell captain wrong. Lighten up a little :). We can't help what happened, but hopefully they open it back up soon. After an extremely thorough check, that is.

Only thing holding that bridge up is all the paint and welds the DOT has did over the past 10 yrs. It is out side of the 50 yr life span that the designer put on the bridge. This is the oldest bridge Ohio has spanning the Ohio River. After the last retro fit in 2000 DOT stated it was good for another 10 yrs.

That bridge is pieced together in an effert to maintain commerce for Russel Ky. Each yr. the DOT does what they call an inspection of the bridge. You can stand under the bridge on the ohio side and see threw the steel girters from all the rust, but it still is safe? I stopped using that bridge 2 yrs ago. I would rather go across at Ashland then take my chances on I/R bridge. Keep this in mind when you do go across it, be prepared to open your door on your vehicle if something happens.

A report from the collapse of the sister bridge in Point Pleasent in the 60s said that some could have survived the fall but was trapped by the super structure of the bridge falling on the vehicle and unable to exit the doors. Good Luck but my advice stay away from things that can kill you.

point pleasant, the silver bridge was a suspension bridge. and traffic was at a stand still on it when it fell. but yes always have doors unlocked and maybe try to roll the window down on the way down. nothing to lose an everything to gain.

Why do you need a bridge connecting to small towns? Ironton needs to save the bridge money for a new jail and for all the lawsuits a certain city council member keeps filling. No Russell/Ironton bridge, people would see a growth in Coal Grove's business district. Does Coal Grove allow alcohol sales?
