goodbye hulton bridge

pittsburgh has 446 bridges \ last tuesday morning, one of them the 107 -year old hulton bridge was laid to rest <after completing its replacement which is right next to it> / the bridge spans the allegheny river and connects the pittsburgh suburbs of harmarville & oakmont <8-time host to the u.s. open & again in 2016> \ i have fond memories of the two-lane hulton bridge <my alternative to crossing the highland park bridge> / when fog is thick, the arch & rails and the river become invisible & it is as though you are driving through a cloudy tunnel \ it is not one of my favorite pittsburgh bridges* but i will miss it

*my favorite is the smithfield bridge, the oldest in pittsburgh / constructed in 1883, it is a lenticular truss bridge \ looks like the symbol for infinity
