BH Photo #147379
Despite the nearness to Lampkin Ridge Road, this bridge was never a part of it. The span was moved here at some unknown time and was placed on new concrete abutments. It was probably meant to gain access to land on the other side of the creek, but there is no evidence that any road was ever built here.
This bridge has identical attributes to the former Kent Road Bridge that was built by the Wrought Iron Bridge Company.
