5,000 bucks, is all a old truss bridge is worth in scrap nowadays.

But costs $100,000 to rebuild properly. Small gain, big loss...

They stole 31,000 lbs of steel, it was about 16.5 cents a pound. They went into scrap metal at the wrong period of time. Everything is low low low now.  It will cost 100,000 to actually construct a replacement span due to the theft
