Nathan,

Just saw this:

"Bridge was in storage in Calhoun County with use on trail planned, but its parts were destroyed by a careless equipment operator."

:( When did this happen?

After seeing that the Townhall Bridge had been re-erected (the result notwithstanding), it makes me wonder if this has since been re-installed as it was intended as well. Though, I would not know where to look, as in even trying to check yesterday, I found out just how much ground the North Country Trail covers in the state...
