No problem. Open up each end and you will have a nice covered bridge I doubt I would have driven a car across such a bridge, much less a load like that.

I have no details. Just a random photo from a website with no explanation. My guess a large crane.

For the cost to remove it they probably could have demoed it and built a new one.

Larry, I like the covered bridge idea best.

I bet that there wasn't a posted weight limit.

When moving something overweight, overlength, or over height, it is the responsibility of the carrier to map the route and check out EVERY booger. Low overpasses, short curves, weak bridges. There's definitely a liability here, and hopefully they are insured.

That maybe true but we don't know if it were the first time that they used that bridge? They may have used it before.

Probably would not of happened if they had more wheels under it to spread the weight out more.

Is there any steel in that bridge? It looks like it's all wood.

At first look I thought that the house was being built over the river and some of the piers failed. Had to look twice to realize it was bridge that the house was being carried over.

Up in the Yukon on the TV series "GOLD RUSH" this situation would be considered a MINOR setback!...

A few hours of delay. No Problem!

Solution:
Call in the gold miners Todd Hoffman and Tony Beets!

They'll have the setback resolved in a few hours!...
