Ponderosa Way Bridge #4
Posted September 13, 2019, by Daniel

I'm surprised that the feds care about a little dirt road. All I can think of is that it'd be egress in case of an emergency.

Are they replacing the Ponderosa Bridge too?

Last time I was there (earlier this year), I don't think the road was passable to normal cars - the rutting was that bad.

Also, the location is a touch off - the bridge pictured is about 265' North of the location on the map.

The federal government is currently working on a new bridge at this site.
