Elm River Bridge
Posted June 2, 2011, by Aaron Lande (allande [at] nd [dot] gov)

This bridge is currently closed to the public. The bridge was closed due to abutment problems. The bridge was damaged in the flood of 2009 and fell into the Elm river. The concrete deck was removed and the bridge was lifted by crane out of the river channel and is being staged on the closed roadway until a structural analysis can be conducted by the engineering firm and the bridge will be put up for adoption, after one year if not adopted the bridge shall be removed and salvaged.
