Last week the third highest flood of historic record for the Brazos River damaged one of the piers on the old Southern Pacific Sunset Route bridge in Richmond, Texas. UP has swung into action to repair or maybe even replace the bridge. I saw some pretty hefty plate girders on trailers parked along Highway 90 this afternoon indicating that at least one of the through girder spans will be replaced. A new road has been bulldozed through the woods from Highway 90 to the bridge site on the east bank of the river and a huge crane was being assembled there this morning. This is a photo I took from behind the Richmond Fire Station this morning. More to follow as thing progress.
