Foot Road Bridge
Posted January 20, 2013, by Tom (tommyboy6181 [at] gmail [dot] com)

This bridge was replaced in 2011 by a similar Pony Truss. The new bridge is approximately the same length but is on new abutments that were raised slightly. This is to better accomodate flood waters that can be seen in the spring. The roadway was widened slightly to add shoulders. Also, the new bolted truss is completely galvanized to minimize maintenance requirements.
