Bridge has recently been rehabilitated

Posted June 29, 2018

Bridge is currently under refurbishment one lane at a time: new pavement, new railings

Posted June 19, 2018

I attempted to visit this bridge, but it no longer exists. NBI shows it was removed between 2008 and 2012.

Posted June 19, 2018

There is now a Facebook page dedicated to saving this bridge: https://www.facebook.com/Bigwhiteriverbridge/

According to the latest update, the group was given an additional 45 days on May 24th to save the bridge.

Posted June 19, 2018

I visited this bridge 6-16-18. It is now barricaded and posted as Bridge Closed.

Posted June 8, 2018

NBI suggests this was likely abandoned circa 1962.

Flagged as a duplicate

I visited this bridge on 5-25-18. It is currently closed to vehicular traffic and only open to pedestrians.

NBI lists this as Bennett St, but it's actually Old Falls Rd

Posted May 14, 2018

Looking at the topographic map, the bridge may have crossed a tributary of Lake Thomas
