Bridge of Refuge

From Dave Brigham:

Every once in a while I drive west into what passes for "country" in the Greater Boston area. On a recent jaunt while my kids were at camp, I crossed this one-lane bridge on Pelham Island Road in Wayland, MA. The road sits in the middle of the Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge.

The bridge itself isn't all that noteworthy, and in fact it is slated for replacement by the Mass. Department of Transportation. Still, I like what the bridge represents, which is a method of slowing folks down before they pass through the wildlife refuge. I'm sure the trolls underneath appreciate that, especially given all the clanky metal that cars have to drive over.

I hope the view of the new bridge remains just as nice as the one of the current one from the banks of the Sudbury River.
