    Depends on how much they "Big Deal" this little bridge.

    nice.
    Good news Ed and nice shot of the work, that bridge has been battered for years. I guess with the higher gas taxes they should be able to pay for it.....Jetspray

    Yea, I fished up that way today. Traffic wasn't bad this morning and I did see some fishers in the area. I decided to leave and fished Round Lake instead, just some small Brookies in the streams today.
