Don't condemn it yet, Connie! It may be in serious jeopardy - but there are a lot of old steel truss bridges that have been further underwater than that one and survived. I'm hoping this one makes it this time. (Way to go, Pratt! You can do it!!)

I'm afraid this bridge is reaching the end of its life. Torrential rain has it under water. I'm posting a picture taken today.

Yes, this is the bridge that the locals refer to as Steel bridge. It is a party area on the weekends and holidays but throughout the week calms down the a nice place to take the family swimming or canoeing.

I visited this bridge and photographed it on 12-17-06. It is a great old bridge in a nice setting. Talked to a guy who grew up in the area. He said he spent his childhood at the bridge and swimming hole
