The first time I crossed this bridge was in 1980. It was on a canoe trip shuttle. The bus driver stopped just shy of the bridge and announced that it was deemed unsafe and anyone who didn’t want to risk life and limb riding on the bus could walk across. We were all satiated from a delightful three-day canoe trip and probably would have been content to die then and there. No one got off the bus.
Thankfully, this bridge on SR 715 between Nellie and Walhonding, was spared when a new one was built. It’s a popular road with motorcyclists and other spurnpikers, who often stop and walk across the bridge to get a scenic view of the Walhonding River.
