Personally I think it kind of wasteful spending to just fix the rocker bearings unless there is going to be some measure taken to prevent debris from slamming the structure and pushing it off its rockers again. No pun intended.
To construct a new bridge and approaches to a proper elevation and hydraulic opening would be HUGE $$$$$$$.
I've seen it where the upper parking lot to the main launch ramp was flooded and once in March we saw what would accurately be called a huge iceberg teetering on the top of the bridge. Two weekends ago, from 36 going up the hill, the water was 2/3 up the dam from the normal summer pool.

Last monday the water was clean up over the signs by the big parking lot and then by last friday the water went down to where the big parking lot was, but only enough to turn a truck around...very impressive, thats the highest ive ever seen it...just by looking at the water we thought the bridge was totally gone, but I guess not!
