Err...I think this page may need updating?

The Historic Bridges page has it well-documented that the original bridge no longer exists, but for whatever reason this page doesn't appear to reflect that. (Among other things, I'm pretty sure the inspection stats listed - which are from 2016 - are for the replacement bridge which was installed in 2011.)

The original bridge was washed out due to a heavy rainstorm on June 12-13, 2008 (article linked which gives the date): http://www.shorelinemedia.net/ludington_daily_news/archives/...

Page 3 of this PDF has a photo of the replacement bridge (which doesn't look half-bad considering what it replaced): https://www.rivercare.org/local/upload/file/CRA%20Stream%20C...
