Perennial Problem

No, this is not Popeye and Penny checking out their family tree. Just the perennial problem of trees being washed down river and bringing thousands of tons of shingle with them. The baskets installed around the bridge supports in my opinion were a big mistake, they not only catch dozens of trees but also allow the shingle to pile up down stream.

It would have made much more sense to have built concrete diamond shaped foundation supports, allowing freedom of flow and less chance of trees getting snagged.
