Pulaski Bridge

Doug,

I cannot find any evidence that this bridge is slated for replacement, especially by some sort of a timber bridge. I did find this article for another bridge but I believe it is a dedicated pedestrian bridge scheduled to be built a short distance west of this existing bridge.
