Yes, I did see the collapsed piers of the old CR48 bridge.
The last picture of the low water bridge is the old CR 48 bridge
Did you see the collapsed piers?
Visited this bridge on 25 Nov. 2006 at 2:30 pm. I drove around a bit looking for it and in the process found an interesting low bridge a couple of miles upstream on the same creek.
This is an a different use of a Pony truss especially on such a wide location; although creek is shallow. Some locals were gathering rocks below the bridge for a home patio. The lady talked about cringing every time her school bus rumbled along that bridge.
Seemed sound to me as I heard two vehicles clattering across. Nice broad gravel bar beneath bridge - great spot for picnicing.
Webmaster's note: The photos that were here have been incorporated into the main site.
This bridge is not called "Camp Pioneer Bridge" as there is a bridge over Twomile Creek at Camp Pioneer that is known by that name. As far as I know, the bridge is simply known as the "Mountain Fork Bridge" or "that old bridge near Potter."
This is the bridge that got me interested in old bridges. It's a huge bridge, it must be seen in person to be appreciated. Hopefully it won't be replaced for a long time.
Hi, love your website. I was wondering why I can't see the pictures on this one , they are all blank with a small red "x" in the corner. Keep the old bridge photos and facts coming. LM
