Turnback Creek Route DD Bridge
Posted August 23, 2011, by Nathan Holth (form3 [at] historicbridges [dot] org)

This truss span may be older than the date listed here. The bridge inspection report describes the main truss span as an "old pony truss" but doesn't say anything more. It sounds like it might have been relocated from someplace else.
