Morse Creek Bridge
Posted October 19, 2017, by Ron Reber (ronreber [at] yahoo [dot] com)

It looks like this may have been a Tee Beam, there are uprights in the creek bed and along the bridge rail there are rebar where the uprights would have been. It had a pipe railing along the top as the pipe is still connected to the uprights.
