Unnamed Creek Bridge
Posted September 15, 2014, by Kevin (weatherbum [at] hotmail [dot] com)

This bridge was removed by the county, probably in late 2012 or early 2013. The bank supports remain but the rest of the structure has been removed. Aerial imagery confirms it existed in mid-2012, but it had been gone for some time when I drove by it in July 2014.
