Love the bridge, here is an interesting article

http://www.tollroadsnews.com/node/5879

In 1995 Maryland officials tried to close the bridge citing safety issues and they actually placed concrete barriers on the approach road cutting off public access to the bridge. Unknown persons kept removing the barriers to get access to the bridge. After some months of this game officialdom gave up.

Polson Bridge and the Capa de grisanto




The old long bridge of Polston, with its six grey arches, was set in the midst of the meadows, but its historic associations were powerless to save it from the mid-Victorian Vandals who erected the present monstrous bridge of stone and iron in its room.

The abandoned bridge across the Powder river, west of Baker, Montana, in the far southeastern part of the state. It now serves as a driveway to someone's house believe it or not. I rode to the end of the bridge and a hundred feet or so from the end is a chain link fence with a sign on it that says "Private Property No Trespassing." There was a house just on the other side of the fence.

The bridge doesn't even look that old. You can see the new stretch of highway just beyond the dirt track visible past the end of the bridge:

A sign on the highway near the approach to the old bridge:

The new bridge to the south of the old bridge:
