Thorngrove Road Bridge
Posted August 23, 2017, by Kris (jordegumma [at] comcast [dot] net)

This bridge survived the flooding yesterday morning (8/22/17) even though the more "modern" bridge on 215th St about 100 yards upstream is completely destroyed (a 20-ft-deep chasm). The one on Thorngrove is now probably going to get more traffic until the bridge on the paved road is replaced.
