Old State Route 46 Bridge
Posted February 7, 2010, by Satolli Glassmeyer (info [at] scenicroadrallies [dot] com)

When State Route 46 was realigned in 1937 this bridge was bypassed and is now used for a private driveway.

Picture number 1 is looking east where State Route 46 is located about 25 yards from the bridge.

Picture number 2 is looking west across the bridge. The old State Route 46 continued west where the white house is located. The driveway which curves to the left is the other half of Witt Road which continued South for about 1 mile to Gaynor Ridge Road. Witt Road was bisected in 1962 when I-74 was built.
