Steel Thru Truss Bridge in the Doe River Gorge

And this is how you take measurements of a bridge when you're afraid of heights. You get someone else to do it for you. Ken Anderson holds the tape measure here while I take a photo and write down the measurement, all from the safety of the abutment. This is the second steel bridge in the gorge, the thru girder. This is the spot where you have a deck girder bridge, a tunnel, and then this bridge...all in the space of about 500 feet.
