Fantastic example of a one-way couplet rehab! Despite being a preservation solution that is often feasible, we really don't see this very often. Hopefully this bridge will serve as an example for other projects to follow.

This bridge has very recently undergone a complete restoration. I don't know the exact details, but the work was only a few days complete as of Jan. 2011. I stopped and took a few photos, and am attaching them.
