This steel-truss bridge, at peace in a grassy field in Edgewood, WA was something I passed for several months on my way to and from a client. It has a venerable history, having been built in 1925 and only decommissioned in 2013 and brought to land in 2015. The Washington State Department of Transportation hopes to do right by this magnificent structure – the agency is trying to sell it whole. Reduce, reuse and recycle at its finest. I’d love to have it in a garden.
