Description 

Bridge gone. Suspect was replaced with current Whetstone Creek Hwy 38 bridge that sits to the south. According to NBI, the current bridge was built in 1968 which leads one to assume this is near the time this bridge was removed. All that remains are one abutment and three supports standing in a field and visible from current HWY 38.
