Verified during opersonal visit today 1/1/10 that this bridge is closed with piles of large gravel blocking access at each end. I had been advised a couple of months back that this bridge was closed, so it appears to have been this way for a time now. Today there were stakes approx 50 yards to the South that I believe may indicate preparations for a replacment bridge.

Photo 7: West Abutment, from north side. 2x12's for unknown reason, maybe a repair prior

Photo 8: Under west end decking on approach. Appears to have metal deck with concrete poured on top. 2x12's mixed in, but not secured very long term.

Photo 9: Upper joint on North side/east end

Spring River CR 2130 Bridge

CR2100 Bridge, located at the intersection of CR2130 and CR1105.

I did not remember to verify GPS location while there, but the tracking on my GPS shows tht it would be at 37 5.308 93 52.104. I believe that what is currently posted is very close.

I was able to get under the west end and take a photo of the abutment. Not sure what the 2x12's ar for, as the steel beams seem to be sitting solidly on the concrete. Maybe they were used for a redecking repair prior and left. This is two weeks after a major ice storm here and there is a lot of tree debris around.
