It's been a long time coming and I will be curious to see it completed. Keeping my fingers crossed that the balustrade railings aren't going by the wayside.

I was out at this bridge site a couple weeks ago and the rehabilitation contract was already well underway. Overall it is in a nice setting with the Mill nearby and the preservation looks like it will fit in well.
