Brick Kingdom Path - Chronicle Bridge
Posted June 14, 2016, by Michael Quiet (MQuiet [at] Gmail [dot] com)

Found this bridge to be posted "closed to all traffic" as of June 2016, but no barricading to prevent access. Thankfully the trusses are in excellent shape, with no signs of distress. The wooden walkway is spongy / tender though, hence its closing. Still safe to cross though, just watch your step.

Apparently its been like this for a little while:
