Twin Bridges No. 1 Bridge
Posted June 29, 2014, by Melissa L Jones (mrhsfan [at] me [dot] com)

This bridge is not open to traffic any longer. The smaller one is, but the larger one is blocked by a large rock. It can be walked across, but it doesn't appear to be drivable. I can provide a photo of the blocked end if needed.
