Has been updated with a 'bridge on a bridge' and reopened to traffic. Original superstructure remains intact under a new steel deck girder with a new wood deck. Approaches raised to meet new deck height.

The build date that's listed is incorrect. 1911 should be the right year.

I put a picture of this bridge up for you. This is the only one that you asked about that I have pictures of (for now).

In place & intact. Blocked off for vehicles, but able to be used by snowmobiles, 3-wheelers & such.

Hope this helps.
