Went to see this bridge today, a wonderful sight to see how it was done many years ago. To bad the Builders plaque is gone, shows it here in May 2010 pics so it lasted 80 years whom ever took it I hope it fell off your mantel on your head and gave you some insight to swiping something that is not yours.

So weird to see this bridge "in the news". Just by chance I have been preparing a HistoricBridges.org update that will include this bridge... The bridge isn't even officially added to the website, but here is a direct link which has some additional photos of this bridge prior to closure. http://www.historicbridges.org/bridges/browser/index.php?bri...

This bridge has been barricaded and closed to all traffic.

Recent heavy rains most likely compromised the support structure, It hasn't collapsed.
