Behold: the Norfolk Southern–Gregson Street Overpass in Durham, North Carolina — aka the 11 Foot 8 Bridge, aka ‘The Can Opener’.
For eleven years, this low span has been tearing the tops off trucks despite light sensors and clear signage warning the drivers of tall vehicles. The carnage has been such that the bridge has long since been fitted with a camera, generating an endless stream of impact videos
Due to an unground sewage line, the road can’t be lowered but the local authority has now finally agreed to raise the bridge height by eight inches, thereby ending an era.
