Wardlaw Street Bridge

Bridge is still standing. I think the Valley Fire, which burned through Middletown and around the bridge immediately before the selected replacement date, may have delayed or cancelled the project. It may have even lowered the traffic over it enough to made replacement unnecessary, or at least less immediate, in the county's eyes.
