This bridge has unfortunately been closed to traffic. While it is officially marked as County Route 37/41, nearly all county routes are state maintained and it was signed as WV 37 given the routing of WV 37 in the area.

An embankment failure on the east bank has caused part of the deck to drop.

Photo's taken in 2007. There were no road signs at either end of this road to confirm the current name. WV DOT map confirmed the 37/41 road number, but WV appears to be getting away form this in this county. Delorme shows this road as East Lynn or SR37.
