Managed By: Icon Here Orphaned Bridges
Bridges that are no longer used for their original purpose.
Expanded Description:
Any bridge that is no longer used for its original purpose can be listed here.

A car or railroad bridge that is now a part of a rails-trails path counts. A bridge that was left to the wayside when a highway was relocated also counts.

A purpose-built bridge on a navigable logging road or ATV trail that is still used for such does not count.

We are particularly looking for bridges "with a story" or other interesting attribute.
