just went there today, 2-27-21 the road on both sides of the bridge are blocked, they are building a new bridge, hope they will keep the old bridge, and not destroy it!

It is good to see an updated photo on here. I have been hoping to get out to this bridge but I haven't had the opportunity as I'm no longer in the area.

There are some good Stone Arch Bridges is in the area but they're going to need maintenance at some point if they are to be preserved. We have lost a couple in neighboring Butler County in recent years due to collapse.
