I don't think the postcard image is of this bridge.

They should reopen either this bridge, or Higginsville Road Bridge. Route 13 through Sylvan Beach can't handle the traffic and the other night there was an accident that caused traffic in the beach to come to a standstill for hours while it was cleaned up and evaluated. I have sent e-mails and letters to the state DOT on this matter and was rudely told "no way". Higginsville Road at one time was on track to be used as an alternate truck route. (Hence the big over thought bridge in Fish Creek Landing. But, the Coast Guard Auxilary also needs the use of Cove Road as do some local fire departments. Let's get something done here New York State! Afterall, you've spent all kinds of money on bridges that only see traffic during salmon season.

THIS BRIDGE NEEDS TO BE REOPENED HOW ABOUT USING STIMULAS MONEY TO REPLACE BRIDGE
