Whig Valley No. 2 Bridge
Posted June 19, 2021, by Neil Krout (kickinpony [dot] 66 [at] gmail [dot] com)

There is no longer a road leading to the bridge. There were crops planted on the North side and a fence across the South side; and no visible road bed. Imagery dated 5/15/19 Google Earth shows a bridge intact.
