Bridge Closed Bridge
Posted October 15, 2017, by David Jones (david2jpix [at] yahoo [dot] com)

This bridge is listed as closed. However, I drove across it and there is traffic that uses this bridge - the road is well used. There are no barricades or notices or anything else to show any closure of this bridge.
