Elk Creek Bridge

The bridge is listed in the 2011 12 Year Transportation program for Erie County as a replacement priority, so if there was work being done at the bridge, it probably is being replaced.

I passed by this bridge on 9 August 2011 and it is closed. I could not tell what exactly what was going on but it looked like the bridge was being removed. It is a short pony truss, it appeared to be very old. I did not take a picture of it (too many ponies, too little time). However, it is closed now.
