The Mine Road bridge was restored in summer of 2011. It was one of very few bridges over Stony Brook that was not washed out as a result of Hurricane Irene.

Nathan, Mine Road bridge looks much better now. It is a pretty shade of dark green and looks like new.

I'll try to get some pictures in the next week or two.
