Nobody Builds Bridges Like Americans


Why did they cover them up? Not that I am complaining…
In Alberta a bridge is a rotten poplar that fell over
a creek leading to a slough…

  4. to preserve the bridge timbers from rain and snow. shingles are less expensive to replace than timbers.

  5. They couldn't leave the sides open or the Democrats would make it illegal saying it was a suicide hazard.

    1. Meaning they might get tossed over. Oh well, there's always defenestration.

  6. Back in the good old days, snow wasn't removed from the roads, it was packed down with horse-drawn snow rollers. Good for horse-drawn sleighs. But the bridges couldn't take the extra weight of 5 or 6+ feet of snow packed down onto them, not to mention that the side rails would be buried and nothing would be there to keep you from going over the side. So the bridges were kept clear this way.

  7. Actually, the Romans built some better than Americans. Some of theirs are still standing 2000 years later.
