Service History 

Written by Craig Philpott

Low level bridge was built in 1965 after previous low level bridge was destroyed. Current bridge does not extend across entire river channel and east approach is often washed away during winter flooding. Bridge was reviewed for extension in 2002 but due to location on river protected by Wild and Scenic River regulations the bridge has not been modified or extended. During periods of flooding or washout the bridge is replaced by the McCann Ferry, a skiff operated by the county road crew to ferry community members across the river to work and school.
