Brown Hoag Road Bridge

Photos 

The Hoag Road Bridge has been removed. All that remains is the abutments. This is a neat spot to watch trains although there is a deep drop off where the bridge once stood and there is no railing.

Brown Hoag Road Bridge
Posted May 6, 2016, by Joel Wyman (jwyman2242 [at] yahoo [dot] com)

Sadly this bridge no longer exists and was removed sometime early this year due to teenage vandals. It was closed in 2006 due to the poor state of its deck and was supposed to be repaired as per the sign down the road a mile or so but instead the funds were allocated elsewhere.
