I believe the bridge is no longer in use as it appears the driveway has been routed around it and a new bridge built over the creek. The bridge decking is in very poor condition. I only took one quick picture of it from the car on August 12, 2017 (because I didn't know it's significance until a search here).

Well done Mr. Brace. Thanks to you and your wife for saving one for us all. Beautiful restoration work too. Again very well done.

It has now been painted in it's original colors. If you drive by on Day Pike in Mason County (Plumville) you can't miss it!

This bridge still exists it is located at 8166 Day Pike, Maysville Ky. I am in the process of restoration of the bridge and would like to find any old pictures of it. Please contact me if you have any questions regarding the bridge.
