    If your asking about the bridge I believe it was some how destroyed/collapsed... Than hauled away as valuable scraps.

    Just to clear this up, the picture above of the bridge lying on the side of the ground was the road bridge that spanned the gap in henryton road which was washed away in hurricane agnes. If you look at the pic I posted you can see the gap in henryton road where the road used to cross over the river to cut through the hospital (you can still see where the bridge would be if you walk the tracks and look left at the henryton power station) and meet up with the otherside of henryton road. The picture of henryton bridge in the oldmainline website is the railroad bridge that goes over the river which is still there, it's not the road bridge which washed away. So 2 diff bridges - 1 is the henryton road bridge, one is the railroad bridge.

    Default This is the Woodstock Rd Bridge.

    Henryton Road Bridge did NOT wash away during the flood of Agnes and remained up until about 1990. It was blocked with a guardrail over a jersey barrier at each end to prevent it's use, as there was so little traffic, it was decided not to repair it. It was damaged, but remained standing. The picture here is of the Woodstock Rd bridge, that was much longer as shown. One used to have to go about a quarter mile along the river to the right along the Baltimore county side and then use a one-lane-bridge. The entrance to the old bridge is off Woodstock rd on the right on the Baltimore county side and has a gate that is usually open at this time. This one lane bridge was REBUILT after Agnes and was used from 1972 until the concrete one replaced it around 1990 or so.
