Re: 11-Foot-8" + 8" Bridge Reopened

From Wikipedia:

In October 2019, the North Carolina Railroad Company began work to raise the bridge by 8 inches (20 cm) as part of a $500,000 project to improve safety and reduce damage to the span. The bridge was raised to a new height of 12 feet 4 inches (3.76 m), the maximum clearance that wouldn't affect the grades of nearby crossings. The entire project is expected to take two weeks to complete, although the actual raising on October 30 only took 8 hours.

It's been raised and open for business........
