This information is incorrect about this bridge. It was originally a one lane wooden ("rickety") bridge that required the drivers to stop and "blow their horn" before crossing as approaching cars from the opposite side could not be seen.

Once on top of the bridge one car would have to "back down" to let the other pass. If you look carefully at the Google Satellite map you will see that it does not span Salt Creek but railroad tracks.

This original wooden bridge is now gone replaced with a 2 lane concrete in the last few years exact date unknown still researching this information.
