One Lane Bridge

This is an abandoned one lane bridge across the Farmington River between Simsbury's main street and its quiet neighborhood, Weatogue.  It is now used by pedestrians and biyclists.

This photo was taken the last week of December, just before the blizzard hit after Christmas and altered the landscape for a while.  I think I will post this today and another one tomorrow, before we forget what it is like in early winter before the snow flies.

It's a good reminder of what is hiding under all that snow.

There is a Sunday Bridge meme that you might like. This photo is a wonderful image for it.

I like these kinds of old bridges. Looks like one I used to bicycle over in South Dakota.

These bridges are wonderful, and I'm so glad it is still being used in some way!
Does that mean you are going to show us the winter version tomorrow?
And....did you walk across it just for fun?:)

Beautiful, with the reflection beneath its graceful lines. The serenity of this scene belies the storm that followed!

Happy New Year!

Great use of a nice old bridge. Many people forget that even though a bridge cannot accommodate current vehicular traffic, they may still be able to handle pedestrian traffic. In a society where it seems people are trying to avoid driving as much as possible, it's important to accommodate ALL modes of transportation (even the simplest). Great post.

A very happy 2011 to you and yours, and thanks for visiting Sydney Daily Photo

We used to have these around my rural area when I was young. I always hated it when we had to drive over these bridges!

Very nice photo, Jack. Love the bridge and the light is excellent...looks like a cool place to live!

I'm glad to hear it's still in use in some way, it's much too pretty to let just sit.

This is a classic!

A great idea to show the comparison of the scene in different weathers.
