Sni-A-Bar Creek Bridge


Street View 


This was the middle of three bridges built in 1929 when Jackson County was developing a fine system of concrete roads. The three bridges, a pony truss, a through truss, and this simple stringer, represent the type of bridges commonly used at the time and their replacement in 2011 takes away the last opportunity to see so many examples in a short stretch of highway. Routes H and F (County 24-E) runs down the east side of the county and are part of the "outer belt" on the east and south side which connected to the roads which ran from the populated areas out into the rural areas.
