I lived in the house adjacent to it until 1996. Its really cool to see it after all these years. Used to play there all the time. We made a path underneath by throwing large stones in the creek. Would spend hours fishing near there too.

This bridge was replaced in 2008 due to deterioration. I helped to inspect it a few times before it was demolished and designed the replacement. Here are a few photos.

This one fortunately is still here. I took some pictures but because of some computer trouble I am having I am not able to send them today (17 March 2007). So I will send them as soon as I am able. It is a cool old pony truss.
