Thanks for the info about the Plum Brook Road Bridge. I've been using the detour for years and never went exploring down the old road.

One correction - the Streetview Photo is of the wrong bridge. Check google maps for the correct views, which are very interesting with piled dirt berms blocking both ends of the bridge.

Does anybody know why they closed the bridge?
