The Bridge in Capon Bridge


 
New bridge at Capon Bridge project notice

The announcement by the Department of Highways that they plan on replacing the bridge in Capon Bridge has raised some local concern. After all, this is a town named for its bridge. We support local efforts to insure the new bridge has some special character that reminds us of our bridges throughout our history. We are beginning to put up information on the old bridges and will have some information on the new project as it becomes available. Below are some images of the current bridge.
