My only thought would be that this was some sort of early bridge numbering system either used by the county, or possibly by the state if this was on one of their old routes.

Beyond that your guess is as good as mine Clark! :-)

I'm still looking for comments from anyone who has seen number plates like the ones on this bridge.
