The 2007 historic bridge survey showed this to be the oldest surviving bridge left in Garfield County with a construction date of 1900. Just a small, riveted Warren pony according to the survey. After being stuck and unstuck numerous times while trying to reach its other siblings, I arrived to find the bridge had been unceremoniously destroyed and replaced with a very unattractive tin shed with a road overtop.
