Old Highway 1 Bridge

Map 

Description 

Built on SR 20, which became Highway 1 in the 1955 renumbering. Bypassed in the 1960s when Highway 1 was straightened between Boyce and Lena. Remained open for local traffic until the mid 2000s, when the power company crossed the right-of-way. The road is currently blocked by a pipe gate at Zimmerman.
