Description 

A lengthy drought in Connecticut has exposed a bridge that has been underwater for about 60 years. The small village of Colebrook River was lost when the Goodwin and Colebrook Lake Dams were built on the West Branch of the Farmington River. The bridge crossed the river in the village and was never removed. While the bridge has been partially exposed in the past at times of low water, this may be the first time it is accessible from the shore.

Congratulations to frequent contributor Chester for bringing Harvey Mountain bridge to "light". His efforts directly led to this bridge winning the coveted Othmar H Ammann award for best kept secret. Keep up the great work and thanks for all your contributions to here and bridgehunter
