Description 

Originally built in Reynoldsdale, in 1975 it was rebuilt on new location near Old Bedforn Village. The bridge is not painted. This bridge is most likely not National Register worthy due to a few changes: U-channels were added to the timbers that support the deck and a pedestrian walkway was added.
