Plummer Creek Bridge
Posted January 24, 2009, by Dan REitmeyer (dan [at] clrconstruction [dot] com)

Even though this bridge is listed as 'no longer exists', it actually does exist, in fact it can be purcased. My company, CLR Inc. replaced the bridge as it is stated, but we salvaged the bridge and have it in our possesion. If anyone is interested in purcasing the bridge, we would be glad to talk to you about it. Even though it is quite old, it is in reasonably good shape. It just was not up to daily wear and tear that is expected of it on a public road.
