At this point they are planning on putting a new wooden deck on the bridge. I doubt they will paint it. The park has been in the news for the last couple weeks so hopefully they will get this project off the ground soon.
Great news to hear that the town is planning on rehabbing this span for reuse as part of a park!
I used to hang out on this bridge when I was a kid! lol.
It was the place to be then. I know the names that are written in spray paint. I love this old bridge!!! We used to climb to the top and jump off when the river was high. I would never do that again because it's very dangerous but back then it was amazing and such fun.
