Bridge was closed to vehicular traffic in Jan. 2011. I mistakenly went down Mill RD. As a shortcut & discovered the closure. I had driven over this bridge numerous times & as it turns out the structure is now deemed insufficient to support cars... I waked it & will post updated pics soon. Has am open steel mesh road surface. In a VERY pretty area of Bucks County.
