Canasawacta Creek Bridge
Posted March 20, 2014, by Joel Wyman (ponchoman49 [at] yahoo [dot] com)

Does anybody know what happened with this bridge. I saw it sitting on the side of the road next to where it originally was after the flooding and it looked intact which begs the question if this bridge is being repaired and going to be put back in place in the future. I sure hope that is the case.
