Yeah I agree, when I pulled up to the bridge I was shocked at how much of it was 'new' instead of 'restored original'.

Posted October 25, 2009

hahaha, I'm not sure which I would rather have! (blurry or pink)

I visited this bridge in September 2007, it was closed. The north end approach was deteriorating badly underneath. I am guessing this is why it was closed.

Posted January 27, 2008

This bridge has been replaced.
