Kate explained to me that this bridge is a point of contention between the railroad that runs below and the school campus it connects. As the rust in these photos attest, the bridge requires some maintenance; the railroad would like to see it gone and the school has no desire to pay for its repairs. Yet neither party is interested in investing their own money into fixing or demolishing it and apparently no one knows who the bridge belongs to; making it no man's land in the truest sense of the term. So, the bridge is in limbo--belonging neither here nor there while people still cross it with little thought of its tenuous presence.
