Was not able to catch this bridge wile in the area 8-18-18, but my wife's cousin from this area said this bridge has recently been closed & condemned. He said this time of year the bridge is pretty well obscured by trees so I hope to come back I the fall to get fall foliage pics & revisit Sugar Creek bridges as well.

Field visit July 2, 2017: The deck on this bridge is in poor condition with missing and loose boards. I actually felt more comfortable walking across the nearby Sugar Creek Bridge (which is closed to traffic) compared with this bridge.
