East Emma Creek Bridge
Posted December 24, 2016, by Robert Elder (robertelder1 [at] gmail [dot] com)

I have wondered about these bridges. There is a similar one over the Whitewater River that was supposedly built in the 1960s. I am thinking maybe these are good examples of post WWII low budget bridges.
