Sunset Road Bridge

The Deck

One would hope that a bridge from the late 19th Century, even a concrete slab, would have some romance to it. The NBI says it was built in 1896 and was rehabed in 1967, but after hunting for it in a hard-to-find place, the old bridge looks suspiciously like it's been replaced with this rather modern slab, probably sometime since the turn of the 21st Century.
