Big Move

What do you do if you need to replace a big, obsolete, 100 year old bridge? If you're in Helena, MT, you put it on a truck and drive it away.

You can read more about the move here, in the Helana IR.

I think it's fascinating that they've taken such care to move the historic bridge rather than dismantle it in place. I've seen bits and pieces of this story as it evolved over the past year or so.

While it's awesome from a historical preservation standpoint, the move can't be easy on the local residents.
