Salt Creek Bridge
Posted January 2, 2017, by Nick Schmiedeler

Found old bridge location - it is extant - decent stone abutment remains on E side of creek, dropped pin in wrong location-old bridge was directly over creek on abandoned straight-line 350 rd. between Y and Carlson....1945 construction date posted a bit puzzling also, only in the sense that it seems "too new" to be extant, and with stone abutments configuration....but counties make whacky decisions all the time....
