1832 Stone-Arch Culvert Uncovered On Nr In Richmond, In

Recommended Posts

Check out the comments to the article. Lots of folks wondering why the road crew plans to cover up the arch when the improvement project is finished. Have to agree!

I'm unlikely to find time to make a trip to Richmond before the project is done. My life is simply too busy, unfortunately. :-(

Although I'm only slightly less busy than Jim (I have books to read and batteries to charge), I think I might go take a look today.

Responses in this conversation from about 3:00 PM Monday may seem terse to the point of being rude but the fellow making them was really quite friendly, especially considering that he was troweling mortar as we spoke.

 

ME: Got an old bridge in there?

 

HE: Not a bridge. An old box culvert. It's all covered up.

 

ME: That didn't take long.

 

HE: Longer than we liked.

 

ME: A couple of days?

 

HE: We've been working on this about two months.

 

ME: Oh. Didn't know that. Thanks.

 

He: You're welcome.

 

As I wrote this out, I think I sound like the rude one. I probably should have said sorry as well as thanks. This has been a reminder that reading things on the internet doesn't make them real-time.
