Swamp Creek Bridge
Posted February 22, 2018, by Alan Cearley (alancearley [at] msn [dot] com)

The information here is wrong. As of 2/22/2018, Swamp Creek Bridge has not been replaced by a culvert or another bridge. I live beside it, I should know. What was replaced was culverts just North of the Bridge over Little Swamp Creek right before it flows into Swamp Creek.
