Previous plans to reuse bridge have fallen through. The bridge is now being offered to a third party for reuse. Contact the Town of Danbury for information. If nobody steps forward, the bridge will be scrapped out.
Built 1905 in the Pine Hall area, moved to Danbury in 1926, closed to traffic in 1998, removed and placed in storage in 2005 with plans for it to be relocated and rehabilitated in Danbury's Moratock Park as a pedestrian bridge across the Dan River.
