Either that "Horse traffic" really picked up in the past 10 years or this was just another case of wasting Taxpayer money.

This bridge got replaced in 2017 with a concrete structure.

I wonder if the "25" daily traffic count includes the horse traffic. Kinda makes the term "pony truss" more appropriate for this bridge.
