Description 

This bridge on the original alignment of SR 50/US 82 (now SR 520) was built in the early 1920s by the State Highway Department. The bridge is shown on plans dated 1922. The bridge crosses an unnamed wetland area. A similar bridge built at the same time is located nearby and crossed over the former Atlantic Coast Line Railroad tracks. The alignment was bypassed between 1940 and 1958, according to State Highway Department maps and HistoricAerials.com.
