Kougarok River Bridge
Posted August 20, 2007, by Marc Okuley (marc [dot] okuley [at] alaska [dot] gov)

Images taken 8-19-07. A true bridge to nowhere. The 86 mile Nome-Taylor gravel highway ends at this one-lane bridge spanning the Kougarok River. A trail proceeds from their to the mining area at Taylor, Alaska. The road was never finished. Weight Limit is 10 tons. Bridge was reassembled at it's present site. Origin of bridge unknown.
