Art and Clark, ended up at Alfred U with a Couple Hours to wait. Drove over and site visited replacement bridge. Bank profile as well at Canisteo River Bridge exhibit EXTENSIVE flood control work but believe Art to be correct.

Chark,

That was my first thought but the crossing is much too large and the road alignment doesn't work. I considered most of the other crossings; they didn't fit for one reason or another.

Also, the text on the card is vague enough that it works.

Regards,

Art S.

You might consider the bridge between Hornell and North Hornell over the Canisteo River. The "North Hornell" name may mean the one to North Hornell rather the one on the north side of North Hornell.
