Five Points Bridge

Visited this bridge May 19 and it is currently closed for a little remodeling. I talked with local resident Jack Pace and was told that on May 18, the deck, which has been cleared of pavement and restored to wooden, caught on fire and burned for quite a bit. He was told that inspectors feared that it may be down for a while.
