Skunk Hollow Road Bridge
Posted July 3, 2017, by James Baughn (webmaster [at] bridgehunter [dot] com)

Field visit July 2, 2017: The deck on this bridge is in poor condition with missing and loose boards. I actually felt more comfortable walking across the nearby Sugar Creek Bridge (which is closed to traffic) compared with this bridge.
