Trib. Independence Creek Bridge
Posted January 5, 2017, by Robert Elder (robertelder1 [at] gmail [dot] com)

This is one of at least three odd concrete stringers of its type in the county. If you look underneath, this bridge clearly has longitudinal stringers running the length of the bridge. Yet, it has rather substantial concrete railings for such a small bridge.
