South Fork Beargrass Creek Bridge
Posted December 25, 2015, by James McCray (jamesinslocomb [at] yahoo [dot] com)

This bridge is much older than the 1956 date the NBI gives it. The bridge was rehabbed in 1956 and widened. The original arch structure remains and can be seen when one takes a peek underneath the bridge.
