Inspected this bridge on 5/9/16. There is not much change from the previous inspection. The only real issue is bowing of some lower chord members, indicating possible inward movement of the abutments putting the chords into compression. There is also some scour behind the northeast wingwall.

That's an unusually aggressive load-limit for a century old, wooden deck bridge on a minimal maintenance road. I hope Mr. Farmer doesn't end up putting this one in the drink!
