Big Shawnee Creek Bridge
Posted March 26, 2007, by Tom Hall (thomas [dot] hall [at] ffni [dot] com)

I found this bridge while looking for another. Though not really visible in these pictures, this bridge seems to sag between the center pier and the abutments. The 5th picture is of a large crack that runs through the side and into the center pier. Surprisingly it has a 12 ton limit.

I think Id look for an alternate route rather than cross it with anything that weighed 12 tons.
