WOW

Thanks for those recent flood pictures Ted

I tried getting that way during the flood but the sheriffs were not letting anyone go north on 18th ave past 75th st unless u lived in that area, It also amazes me that this bridge didn't get washed away during this flood

Yep I do live in Rochester, its good to know there are some people in my area that have the same interests as me. As for the bridge and that road when they built the hydroelectric dam upstream they flooded part of this road out so that is why this is now on a private dr. Matt also noted in the description either the flood of 1978 or early probably destroyed the original deck.
