This bridge and all supports were completely destroyed by the flood. GONE. Just some steel rubble downstream. The stone remnants of the old mills at that site appear to be gone too. I suppose the iron bridge over Sweetwater at river road is gone too. Those were the last two remaining in the county as far as I know.

A very scenic location. It's too bad the bridge was allowed to deteriorate so badly. If it survived the flood it is only a matter of time until it falls.

I am suspecting that this bridge is gone. The flood that just happened was very severe on the Dog River and damaged/destroyed several major road crossings.
