Status of Delaney Road Bridge Needs Changed to Closed
Posted January 24, 2023, by Tim Hickernell (thickernell [at] gmail [dot] com)

Per the other two reports, the bridge is now permanently closed, as there is no longer a road on one side of it. Here's the documentation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Pq98Nkhn54

Just saw a live video by a railfanner named Jawtooth.Showed the bridge which is still there.One entrance to the bridge is barricaded and on the other side the road is removed so this bridge is officially closed to traffic.Bridge is still in pretty good shape.

I just saw a video on this bridge this morning on YouTube by a man named Jawtooth.He showed the bridge above and below.Seems to be in great shape still.Didn't see no major deterioration above or below the bridge.
