Big Fork Creek CR 67 Bridge
Posted July 1, 2010, by Fredrick Garcia (fandsgarcia [at] gmail [dot] com)

Visited this bridge on 29 June 2010 at 3:15 pm. I came to the bridge via CR 675 from Big Fork on Hwy 8. Nice to see a double pony out in such a remote area. Much welding and remedial work has been done, but not recently. One end has asphalt pavement and the other end is gravel road. I will add some additional photos to this posting, mainly the weight limit sign, the lacework on the top chord, and creek bank stabilization.
