On the Underside of the Hamilton Blvd Bridge near KFC and Memorial Field the bridge is showing serious and sever signs of deterioration. Pieces of concrete are missing and the re-enforcement bar is showing. This is not only a danger to trail users with concrete falling onto the trail surface below not to mention the potential of the entire bridge collapsing onto the trail but it is also a serious danger to those that drive on Hamilton Blvd and cross the bridge every day.
This is just one bridge where I noticed this is happening. The trail passes under at least 5 bridges. It is unknown what kind of condition they are in.
These photos show the deterioration of this bridge. Notice the large piece of concrete mixed in with the pink rock. It looks like it came from the one section of the underside of the bridge. The one column has a date of 9-19-56. I do not know if this means the bridge was built in 1956 or if it means something else. I have heard Hamilton Blvd was widened from 2 lanes to 4 in the1980's. From the looks of the deterioration it looks like the bridge is not inspected as often as it should be. Perhaps it has not been inspected since it was built if that date is indeed 1956.
