Anyone know if that bridge is still there?No, it washed away shortly after the railroad closed in 1933.
Boy, washed away? In order to wash away the bridge, that river would have to rise 20 feet higher than its level in the photo. Whatever year that was, the spring runoff must have been ferocious!It is often the debris that gets jammed under the bridge and accumulates that takes out the structure.
