You know the rotting, rusted, and now closed, bridge that spans Route 2?
You can buy it. In fact, the state has to make sure you have the chance to buy it.
The feds have informed the state Agency of Transportation that before it tears the bridge down, as it was going to do later this month, it has to offer it up for sale, on account of its historic nature.
That will delay demolition slightly, as the offer has to be on the table for 30 days, AOT spokesman John Zicconi said.
The thing about the bridge's historic nature is that if it's anything like some of the other ugly (green, hulking and rusting metal= ugly, except when we're talking about my car) remnants of our history, it'll come back into vogue, much like clothes from the '70s.
You could be the first on your block to have one.
