This bridge is locally known as the "Rattling Bridge". A person on geocaching.com says this about the bridge: "This is part of the original bridge that went across Highway 94. Then it had an old wooden bottom, so whenever cars traveled across it of course it made a rattling sound. When they built the new bridges on highway 94 they floated this one down Clarks River to where it now rest, and also replaced the old wooden bottom with a concrete bottom."
