Swanson Road Bridge
Posted January 9, 2014, by irene szabo (treeweenie [at] aol [dot] com)

I live around the corner from this bridge (Swanson Rd, Livingston County, NY). No longer closed because it was totally replaced over a year ago. So much for historic significance. anyway, local people very happy to have it back, but I've lost a peaceful dog walk across there. amish neighbors especially are relieved to have it open .
