Hawk Drive Bridge
Posted December 26, 2014, by Jason Smith (JDSmith77 [at] gmx [dot] net)

This bridge has been barracaded to all traffic from as far as a half mile back. From the south end it has been gated off, while the north end is fenced off 500 feet from the STOP sign at the end of private property. Looks like the only chance to see it is with permission, unless the bridge is removed otherwise.
