I forgot to add that this bridge was demolished after the new one opened.

This bridge has been replaced with a new one approximately 1/2 mile upstream. The highway has also been re-aligned to eliminate the bad curve and hill. Construction was completed and opened late summer of 2007. This was a much needed improvement but wasn't soon enough. I have been on the local fire department over 20 years and have been to numerous accidents at this location. I'm sure the families of the 8 fatalities that I remember wish that it would have been sooner.
