This bridge is scheduled to be removed and relocated to the City of Mitchell to be used as part of the City's bike/pedestrian trail system. On March 18, 2007, the bridge was no longer passable - high water from recent snow melt washed behind the north concrete abutment moving it southward. I've got some pictures I'll post one of these days.
