The Definitive 11Foot8 Bridge Crash Compilation

A 10 minute compilation of all crashes uploaded between 2008 and 2016 by 11foot8.com

What is the location of the 11foot8 bridge? 201 Gregson St in Durham, NC (intersection with Peabody St)

Why is the bridge so low? This train trestle is about 100 years old. At the time when it was built, there were no standards for minimum clearance.

How often do trucks crash into the bridge? On average, about once a month a truck gets visibly damaged at the bridge. However, every day I see trucks that trip the overheight warning lights, stop and turn into the side street.

They are in the process of raising the bridge.
