Issue:

Bridge on public gravel road. Old bridge structure (wood contains creozote) and right side of the cage has collapsed and is now supported by an added metal brace. Camp on the right bank. There is some erosion on the road on top of the bridge. Fire pit area on top of the steep left bank.

Action Required:

The bridge should be fixed or replaced with a new structure. Stabilize the approach to the bridge. Replace the wooden beams on the bridge with wood that does not contain creozote.
