Visited this bridge at 1:15 p.m. on 29 June 2010. Some observations are: (1) that the north main portal has deformation damage from vehicle strike. Several of the vertical and diagonal ladder braces are also noticably distorted. (2) this bridge has since been equipped with running boards, (3) the weight limits have changed. I didn't notice any of the above in Wayne's 2005 photos. Nuts and bolts are are prevalent probably from the last rehab. I will add some updated photos to this posting that will show these observations/changes.
Butcher Knife Creek crosses under Hwy 8 with a modern concrete bridge (1949 plaque) within eyeshot of this Big Fork Bridge.
