I grew up west of this old bridge from about 1960 through 1970. I remember the older bridge before this one. It was a very creaky old bridge that I could actually hear it creak as the cars went over it. It still gives me the chills just remembering it! Several vehicles had gone over it and turned over into the creek below. When the creek would flood after heavy rainz,it would actually almost disappear.
