May Bridge Challenge – Bridge 4

We looked to avoid all the Mothers Day traffic that would be heading to eateries, scenic destinations, etc by doing a 56 kilometre loop on country roads southeast of Wangaratta. We crossed two bridges – one with water, the other with none. We also traveled over many culverts, some with water underneath and some bigger than the bridge over no water. For awhile I pondered when a culvert becomes a bridge and the structural differences between the two. When I say I pondered for awhile, I mean, I thought about it for less than a minute and then moved on. Engineering stuff doesn’t really entertain me much. But here is the bridge for the day over Hurdle Creek.

Bridge over Hurdle Creek where the foothills meet the alluvial plains southeast of Milawa and Markwood.
It is big enough to get a sign.
