A picture of the former bridge and the road leading up to it from the south, the bridge is at the bottom of a fairly steep hill,which contains a lot of limestone with shell imprints.

Guess they got tired of rebuilding it, blame the modern farm equipment..

I went to the south side of what used to be this bridge back in May 0f 2011.There is some concrete with the re bars sticking of out it...The place seems is so hollow with the bridge gone. I guess i revisit this site just as often.

I have some pics of this bridge.But since the county removed the bridge there will be no more. I guess my pics are going to be special to just me, and very rare.

This bridge held all kinds of memories for me.

I went back to see it all the way from Australia this Oct 2009 and wept because it was gone. Saw it last in 2007.
