Greensboro Pike-Duck Creek Bridge

Map 

Description 

Listed in Pan American Bridge Company's "Golden Anniversary 1902-1952" Book. Incorrectly written as being over the Big Blue River, but was over Duck Creek (A branch of the Big Blue).

I had heard this bridge was lost to an accident, which might explain it's short 35 year life.
