The torrential rains of Winter/Spring 2006 undermined the community's bridge foundation causing it to drop and become unusable. Some vehicles were able to get across before the bridge was closed so that people could walk across, then take those vehicles into town. To repair the bridge, the community banded together to do the temporary repairs while a (mandated) replacement was designed. These are photos from that repair.
