Tony -

I live on Martin Hill, word from my neighbor the bridge is still in storage and that there were plans to reconstruct the bridge in its entirely as a display in Georgetown for the Brown County Fair.

They should have just restored the covered bridge and tuck-pointed the abutments at that time. This has to be one of the most scenic locations I have seen and it certainly looked much better with the old bridge there.

Ken, do you know if this bridge is really still in storage as is mentioned in the description?

They built the new bridge on the old stone support walls. Those are starting to fail. The county jacked up the new bridge and poured a new wall on one side in 2012.
