A new steel culvert has been installed to the east of this stone culvert. The creek has been diverted to flow through the new culvert. Water will still flow through the old culvert during wet weather. Photographs to come.

This limestone culvert is accessible only through the Rock Springs 4-H Center (private property). An interesting feature of this bridge is the limestone floor. I will upload pictures later.
