Another good example of a recycled bridge. piers are squared for the jersey barrier one and the piers are rounded but has the picket fence like bridge guardrail from the 50s.

If the poster is concerned about the above bridges not matching (they look almost identical to me), image the hysteria resulting from our mis-matched Bay Bridges across the Chesapeake:



And I would guess a third bridge (if ever built in our lifetimes) would be visually different as well.

If a third bridge is built, what do you want to bet that it will be a precast box beam, with a cable stayed main span?
I hate those types of bridges, as they are used so much. But, they are used a lot because they are cheap.

Another one of a recycled bridge. When I85 was rebuilt in 2016, they took everything but the guardrail. :ded:

Are you referring to this guardrail? If yes, then it's because it's dangerously close to the mainline highway.

The guardrail is on the bridge that is in the picture.
