Cedar Creek Bridge
Posted October 19, 2008, by Bob Davis (bobdaviscfi [at] earthlink [dot] net)

Here's a bridge that needs a home and a puropse. Cedar Creek frequently has overrun its bounds and the approaches are completely gone. The wood deck is totally gone except for a few planks. The bridge was on 98th Avenue, now a Class B road which has long been closed for this section.
