I have heard rumors that the old haul road may be opened up to driving one day, but this bridge crosses the haul road. That is what it looks like they are getting to do if that is the case. I will be one sad person if they do this as it will destroy the fishing in the area. Though if they would barricade the dip off to traffic where Keffler Kamp (Campsite N) resided, that might stop a lot of destructive fishing if they keep the end where the old complex sat shut down from traffic.

Just guessing, but since they have a tee intersection and a bridge, it would seem logical that they would remove the bridge and bring it's grade down to create one 4 way intersection.

I would like to what going around this bridge as some construction crew, I assuming the Morgan County Highway crew, has been clear-cutting down to this bridge alongside the road. The trees and stuff have been cleared out on 3 of the 4 sides around this bridge and it is a wide path. If anyone knows what is going on around there, I would like to know as the whole countryside is torn up and is rougher than I'll get out in there.
