Lake Bridge
Posted September 5, 2011, by J.P.

this bridge was relocated around 1998 verification via Google earth historical imagery. But now the question is were was this bridge relocated from. Since no one was home we couldn't ask. But I'm guessing from somewhere in the county. Also even though I didn't think to take a photo of this, the railing looked like they had been cut off from either a approach or multiple span bridge. Any thoughts are welcomed.
