The status of this bridge is currently “pending,” which means that its future is currently unknown as the Section 106 historic review process is on-going.
Depending on the outcome of Section 106 consultation, interested parties may be able to acquire the bridge. The County is now accepting proposals for the rehabilitation and reuse, or the storage and future reuse of the bridge. Proposals will also be accepted for the salvage of elements that may be stored for future repair of similar historic bridges.
