    Bird Dog #1: "Damon,I saw this story and immediately thought of repurposedMATERIALS.  It is an extremely old lift bridge over the Chicago River that the city is replacing.  The only cost that the owner will bear is the cost of dismantling.  It is historic but the city sounds like it doesn’t want to tackle a restoration.  Not sure how it could be repurposed but it is certainly an interesting artifact." - Dan in Chicago  Read Article about Bridge>>
