Visited this bridge. While obviously well thought of by Chili in DIRE condition. While not being worked on today, has evidence of such. Traffic here is very fast be careful! Masonry arch bridge also owned by Chili visible from deck

Attached are several images of the NY 386 Black Creek Bridge, ID# BH 26259.

The structure is now officially known as the "James E Weidner Memorial Bridge". It is dedicated to a serviceman killed in action in Vietnam ca 1967 and who grew up just a few hundred yards distant from this bridge.
