Visited and photographed this foot bridge on Monday, July 7, 2008. This historic bridge is in terrible condition due to all the recent rains and flooding. I walked back and forth across the bridge and probably shouldn't have. Very dangerous with the floor found quite rotten, boards gone, and in bad need of a complete overhaul! This bridge needs help NOW!!!
Visited this bridge today, shot some b/w art photos. Chatted with some locals swimming in the creek. According to them, this bridge was built for a blind lady who lived on the hill (west side) to be able to cross the creek to get to the general store she operated about a block away (east) from the bridge. Next to this bridge is a low-water culvert-type bridge for vehicular traffic, and according to the locals, that is all there ever was there for vehicles. The current low water bridge is about 4 years old, replacing an older one that was washed away in high water.
Visited this bridge at 6:00 pm on 2 March 2007. Charming little cable suspension bridge with slat boards and a center concrete & iron pier. The bridge appears fragile and distorted. The wooden step stringers attached to the concrete pier on the east bank are deformed and warped badly and would not seem to be able to take the weight of a person; but I climb up and crossed the bridge in both directions successfully.
