There is also another culvert up Inland Dam Road that is 6' tall that was built in 1936 by the wpa. It is hidden. I work at the dam.

I was actually just passing through on my way to Montgomery. I take the long whenever I can so I can visit some treasures on the way.

I crossed this culvert right before the bridge.

I'm glad I got out and checked. I didn't expect to find a 1936 imprint in it. A nice surprise.

Found this on Google Earth, had no idea there was even an old line there. Google Earth and Bing Maps have some very good shots of the bridge from various angles.
