Intact but closed to all traffic, scheduled to be replaced soon.
Closed to traffic in July 2016 because of "catastrophic truss crack" discovered by the state. No one has released an official statement as to whether it will be replaced or repaired. One wingwall/abutment also has a severe crack. The bridge was ignored WAY too long by the state.
A date in the concrete near the bridge says February 1932. The bridge replaced a covered bridge.
