02/04/12 121 W - + 1 - 7 The Gregson Street Guillotine Again


Been a couple years since we posted about Dave Statter's favorite bridge in Durham, which we first featured in this posting in October 2009. The big yellow signs read 11 feet 8 inches, but that doesn't deter drives who attempt to squeeze their tall trucks (or trailers) under the railroad bridge beside Brightleaf Square. (And again, let's plug for Satisfaction Restaurant and Bar, home of the Triangle's best pizza, says me. Bought a large pepperoni with light cheese just this afternoon...) The camera is  operated by Jurgen Henn, and is featured on his web site 11foot8.com. Below is a video clip of a semi truck that didn't make it under. The crash is number 46 since April 2008.
