It is a shame to hear that!

I had hoped to revisit it when I was down that was in June 2009, but unfortunately never made it there.

Won't be any pictures of it then. Removed Summer 2010 and replaced with a concrete deck over steel girder bridge. No sign of the truss bridge so I don't know if it was moved or destroyed.

This is a newer Warren pony truss bridge, and is in good shape. Thought I had a picture on file....but can't find it.
