Description 

This bridge has been private property for at least 40 years. The current owner uses it for field access and has a large track hoe equipped with a homebuilt attachment for pulling accumulated trees out of the water, thus preserving the bridge.

The landowner was informative about the neighborhood roads and bridges, and quite gracious in allowing me access.
