495 is all 14 foot clearance. What was this driver hauling to strike the bridge?
Edit added pic of 90 going over 495
Looks like a flatbed with a camper ?
The article said he was on US 9 and at the overpass is 495, still the sign says it’s 14’2”.
We have some 14' trailers that we haul roll stock in but still..... should'a went under a 14' 2" over pass. I'm kinda curious.
Looks like there are two bridges in the immediate vicinity. My guess is that while one has a clearance of 14' 2", the other bridge has a lower clearance.
Looks like a pre fab building of some sort
