Dam Road Bridge
Posted April 20, 2013, by Joe (ponchoman49 [at] yahoo [dot] com)

I find it really odd that this bridge was demolished. I remember as a kid 30 years ago fishing in this spot and this bridge was well closed back then. Why 30-40 years later does it all of a sudden need to go? This should have been cleaned up and made into a pedestrian walk bridge. It's really maddening watching our precious history callously being destroyed.
