Bengis Creek Bridge
Posted December 3, 2013, by Zachary S

Just finished putting every single Alabama bridge on Bridgehunter in my placemarks folder for Google Earth (an endeavour that took more than a little time!) and now searching the state for interesting bridges not yet listed here. Ran across this while randomly following waterways.
