This was an early success story for the preservation of an historic bridge. Since the bridge was already in a state park and the new highway bridge was being built downstream, it was easy to preserve the old bridge for pedestrian use.
There are four methods used for bridge preservation:
- Repair the bridge for continued use.
- Bypass and preserve the bridge.
- Move the bridge to a site with lighter or non-vehicular traffic.
- Rehabilitate the bridge while maintaining it's historic character.
