I have an old picture of the bridge somewhere after the bridge was closed and before it was demolished.

The postmistress in Coolville told me, a few days ago, that this bridge has been gone for at least three years. Another person told me she didn't even remember it. I checked ths site from both sides of the river and find nothing remains.

The bridge was demolished in 2006 and is being replaced by a new structure downstream.
