I agree with you Tony about questionable bridges.That's why I ask if a bridge might or might not be historic to be on Bridgehunter.

This entry is also a duplicate of http://bridgehunter.com/ny/orange/popolopen/ - as far as I can tell this bridge is located in Orange County.

Yeah, it's rather small and I didn't notice it the first time.

Not anything that I would add on here, but unfortunately this site is filling up with stuff that has questionable "Notability".

No, I think he is referring to the Poplopen Creek Footbridge. There is a small suspension bridge carrying a hiking trail over the creek between the arch bridge and the railroad bridge... I think it is of a modern design but designed to replicate a design similar to the Wheeling Suspension Bridge. I do not believe it is already listed here.

I noticed a suspension bridge between this bridge and the CSX railroad bridge.I didn't see it on Bridgehunter or did I miss it?
