Route 47 between Wshington Depot and Route 25 has two bridges across the Shepaug River. However, neither one is passable. The sturdy old iron bridge lies at the bottom of the stream and its temporary replacement, right beside it, completed only 48 hours before flood waters returned in October, has lost one of its abatements. The other bridge from the Depot to Washington Green was not affected this time.
