Bridge #5 was a wooden kingpost truss that deteriorated and was removed in 1986.

This pony truss moved from Price County after it was replaced by a UCEB.

McGilvray Road Bridge No. 5

J.R. Manning,

I would be very curious to know what your experience was like hiking to these bridges. When I visited these bridges a couple years ago, I encountered numerous mosquito... and here in Michigan in 2015 we have a record number of mosquito, so I am imagining these bridges could have been nightmarish, unless it isn't as bad over in Wisconsin.
