This bridge sits on the Northwest corner of our proterty. the "Facts" should be updated for improvements provided by an overhaul that was done to it which raised its vertical hight from the original 11' 6" clearance to 14" 6". The flooring, siding and Floofing was replaced during the Fall 2006 leaving the bridge suitable for any sized standard weight & height commercial auto,truck, tractor or any other motorized traffic.
