Brushy Creek Bridge
Posted July 20, 2010, by Fredrick Garcia (fandsgarcia [at] gmail [dot] com)

Visited this bridge at 3:30 pm on 12 July 2010. I have added several photos to this posting. Observations: This bridge is on a gravel road about 100 yards off Hwy 270 and has no weight limits posted on either end. The decking boards are unique in the sense that there are at least one hundred 2x4's tightly laminated on their edge on top of 4x10" timbers, which are on top of steel I-beams. The double angle iron construction is robust with rivets, nuts & bolts, and gussett plates. Some members have PENCOYD USA embossed on them. The foundary is in Montgomery Co., PA, and the bridge was erected in Montgomery Co., AR.
