Thanks for the kind words! There is a ton of information on the net on bridges but by far the best site I have found is bridgehunter.com [link]

They have a United States map on their front page, you select the state you are interested in and then it brings up a map of the state broken down by counties. You just select the county you want and brings up a pretty comeplete listing of current bridges and even bridges that are long gone. Not every listing has the comeplete information that this one did, but a lot of them do!
