West Beaver Creek Bridge
West lost bridge
The National Guard (I think) is installing water and sewer lines, and have cleared the old road. Unsure if they're going to rebuild the two bridges.

One of two bridges over Beaver Creek on Mill Creek Road. These bridges were built by the Army prior to World War II to serve as a direct route between Camp Livingston, a major training facility for the war, and the old rifle range to the east. Closed to traffic in the late 70s and destroyed / demolished some time later.
