The Toughest Bridge in the World

Nothing is too tough for this 100 year old bridge in Durham, North Carolina. This was the final destination for many of these trucks. The bridge is located at 201 Gregson St in Durham, NC (intersection with Peabody St). Why is the bridge so low? This train trestle is about 100 years old. At the time when it was built, there were no standards for minimum clearance. On average, about once a month a truck gets visibly damaged at the bridge.
