Pump Station Road Bridge

Yes, the bridge still stands as of 7/29/2014 but is barricaded at both ends and accessible only from what remains of the road it once carried which seems to have become a dirt access road for the gas/oil industry that has sprung up in the area.

I think the bridge is still there. Yesterday (8/26/11) we accessed Pump Station Rd from the Washington county side. (i.e. off Morey Rd.) At the bottom of an incredibly steep road, we found this gorgeous bridge.
