Notes
  • BDR: Completed 1889. BDR also states the bridge underwent "major repairs" in 1936 including replacement of the wooden deck with a steel deck. I suspect the entire bridge was replaced at this time. Older photos of the bridge show wooden towers, a wooden deck, and a completely different cable arrangement.
  • Damaged by floodwaters June, 2006. Repaired October, 2006.
