South Fork Creek Bridge
Posted April 11, 2009, by Dale Travis (daletravis [at] bigfoot [dot] com)

4-8-09: Bridge is in a pile (appeared to be a pile of junk)on the E. side of the creek. It appeared they were dredging the creek as there was a large berm on the E. side of the creek for as far as I could see & a backhoe digging in the creek.
