Description 

This bridge was abandoned in place and a new alignment of Meehan-Savoy road was built, including a new bridge. The old bridge may still be reached from the south end by driving down the old alignment (now a dead-end road where a few homes are located). The old road is barricaded at the bridge. The bridge is intact but in poor condition.
