Notes
  • Closed to vehicular traffic, 1987. Vandalized, 2006. In December of 2006 after several reports of vandalism, George Britt writes: "I walked the bridge December 24, 2006. It is in rough shape but you can still walk on it if you are careful. Vandals have started fires on the bridge span damaging the planks. Some planks are missing. There is also considerable graffiti about."
  • Scheduled for restoration (repair of deck boards and grafitti), Fall, 2008.
