This beautiful bridge is no longer open to traffic. It is blocked at both ends with huge mounds of dirt. I think the last flood took out most of the deteriorating deck.

Visited this bridge on Wednesday, July 9, 2008. Its a beautiful old bridge, especially with its ornate railing. Unfortunately the old girl is in very poor condition; railing on both side is missing, found one section in the tall grass just east of the bridge. The floor needs to be replaced and genearl overall maintainence done. Great photos at about every angle including one that can be taken from the U.S.62 bridge just to the south.
