Young's Ford Bridge
Posted August 20, 2009, by Mike Templeton (mk [dot] temp [at] hotmail [dot] com)

Visited the Young's Ford Bridge on 7-30-09. Appears to be in really good shape. The road to it is pretty poor, but still open. Not sure what is on the other side, the road on the other side has been closed for a long time.
