Greenfield Pike Bridge
This was the third bridge at this site, the original covered bridge was lost in the 1913 flood and the replacement concrete span was heavily damaged, once again by the flooding of 1927. Contract price for this span was $13,190, and it is uncertain why the contractor used a Baltimore truss in this application. After being deemed eligible for the national register in 1980, the bridge was closed to all traffic in 1981 due to structural problems.
