Hulston Mill Bridge
Posted April 29, 2008, by Greg Hall (cyclebay [at] aol [dot] com)

Driving by EE hwy last Sunday, saw the road was closed for this bridge, turned down to check it out and this is what was found. 4/27/08

Photo 1 looking North from Hwy EE. A fisherman was loading a boat from the road while we were there. Fisherman stated that the water hardly ever was over this bridge and that it had been underwater for nearly 2 weeks. This area has had record rainfal for February, March, and is maybe 1/2" over normal for April. Stockton dam had all four water gates dumping, but not even halfway open.I am guessing that it will be awhile before the road is travelable again.

Photo 2 Trying to reach the bridge from the north shore. Bridge is straight ahead and around the corner to the left, approx .2 miles
