Plainview Road Bridge
Posted October 10, 2009, by Randall Houp (ghostbridgehunter [at] yahoo [dot] com)

My wife and I went on a bridge-hunt to this area on October 3, 2009. I am sorry this small piece of history no longer exist. Its been replaced by sloppy work of large metal culverts and cement. "Ghostbridgehunter"
