Prospects for this bridge 

Written by Karl Sweitzer

This bridge was replaced by a curving concrete structure just to the north back in 1985. Until recently, this (old) bridge was the only pedestrian link between the east and west sides of Piru Creek. Now that a pedestrian walkway has been added to the new bridge, one wonders how long it will be before the closed-off old bridge is demolished.

This bridge is used for the bridge to "Noble's Hollow" on the tv series "Justified".

I was flipping through the TV and I believe I saw this bridge appearing in an episode of Reno 911. My TV tells me the episode is: VHS Transfer Memory Lane, dating to 2009. The scenes were shot such that the new bridge was not visible.
