Beautiful!

And a perfect example of what should happen with an historic bridge on a low ADT road!

Happened upon this bridge on August 24 to observe the finishing touches on a restoration. Photos show the installation of wooden floorboards.

This bridge will be undergoing a rehab in 2015-2016. Unsure if this bridge will become a pedestrian bridge or will be upgraded to vehicular traffic.
