Cama Bridge
Posted September 5, 2011, by Chris Gonnerman

The location shown on the map for this bridge is a grade crossing over the railroad; this is obviously not right. About 1/2 mile due east is a location where there might have been a bridge at one time, based on the road layout; might this be the location where the bridge should be marked?

Also, 2 miles west along the tracks is a bridge over the railroad which I don't find on this site. I've included the best photos I've been able to take of it with this post.
