This excellent example of an 1880s Pratt truss bridge was bypassed, and enjoys some community support for preservation. The bridge deck and approaches were damaged by floods in 2015. FEMA funding provided for the repair of the bridge to "pre-flood" conditions. This included repairing the deck, but apparantly did not include repairing the concrete piers. The southwest bearing rests on a concrete pier that is missing a corner of concrete, leaving this corner of the bridge at risk for falling off the pier awhich would result in the collapse of the bridge. The bridge should be considered at a severe risk for collapse.
