This is a real tragedy. Utah has very few historic bridges, and I never knew (nor apparently did anyone on BridgeHunter) that this forest service land had a rare Kingpost pony truss, and I only found out about it because of a news article about its demolition. This is shameful on the part of the Forest Service. A bridge this small and rare should at least have restored and been preserved in a new location.
