The entire concrete arch bridge was torn out and replaced. New bridge re-opened by Memorial Day, 2010.

7/14/09 Locals told me they were going to start working on the bridge in a couple of weeks. Having this bridge out is a big inconvenience to the people who live there.

4/18/09 Bridge is closed. Barricades across it, but not permanent. No signs that it is being removed right now. Too muddy for photo today.
