Description 

The road has been diverted past this bridge, with a new bridge built beside it. It is still "open" but there is no road as such on the north end, just private property. Bridge is easily accessed, easily reached just off blacktop and easily photographed and enjoyed. Depending on weather/season it can be explored from every possible angle.
