There were originally 3 stone arches here built sometime around 1890. Early in the 20th century a flood washed out 2 of the 3 arches and the county retained the remaining arch and added the unique Warren Deck truss over the creek.

This one looked to have been rebuilt before, I'm wondering how much is still original.
