Fish Creek Bridge
Posted August 16, 2010, by Cliff Darby (clif30 [at] hotmail [dot] com)

I'm not 100% positive, but I'm pretty sure this was along the original alignment of US 165... if you look at the geography and the location of the old 165 roadway to the north, LA 524 may have taken over this section of highway when the new alignment was ran in the 1930s. If you follow 524 north to LA 123 and cross LA 123, you come to the original alignment of 165, and one can follow this alignment all the way north of Georgetown.
