Supposedly the bridge is going to be replaced in the near future.

I'm sorry, my comment should have read "late summer, 2009". August, I think, but not certain. It was finished when I drove the bridge September 3rd.

This bridge has just been rehabilitated to some degree. The new deck (still wood, but new) was finished in late 2009.
