Rosepoint Bridge
Posted July 8, 2012, by John Ruskin (Johnruskin [at] hotmail [dot] com)

Was just at the campground by this bridge last week. I failed to ask the locals about it, but to me it looked pretty solid, I did see under the bridge from the stream bank on the side, nothing looked bad. The high concrete arch bridge nearby carries the current alignment of US 422. That bridge has had its deck rebuilt, but looks older than the 1950s/60s date when the highway was supposedly realigned off the old bridge. And why would they build a new bridge in the 50s to replace a bridge from the 1930s on a road section being bypassed?
