Dismal Creek Bridge/DeHart Road Bridge
Posted March 23, 2008, by DJ Fleming (djfleming [at] scan [dot] sugardog [dot] com)

This bridge was replaced around 2004. This stretch of roadway across the bridge is referred to as "DeHart Road" by natives who live in the area between the bridge and Stockwell/Crane Station/Concord.
