Waterworks Creek Bridge
Posted January 1, 2017, by Mike Daffron (daffronmike [at] yahoo [dot] com)

Clay Co has used several pieces of this bridge to modify (?) their ugly-turd culvert bridge. I have seen several little pieces used like this in other structures here and in Greene County. Kinda gruesome.
