Poney Creek Cold Water Springs Rd. Bridge
Posted February 6, 2010, by Robert Elder (robertelder1 [at] gmail [dot] com)

This is a rather interesting bridge. I suspect that the cement pylons are a later addition. The bridge is either not functioning as a truss, or it has become a continuous pony truss.
