Rivaux Creek CR 4038 Bridge
Closed by means of two large gravel piles on either side. The east approach has a large 2' x 5' hole on the upstream side of the deck and very little steel beam support underneath. Looks like something wider than the wood tracks attempted to cross. In the summer, this span is very concealed by trees & brush.
