Sweetgrass Creek Bridge
Posted July 23, 2016, by David Jones (david2jpix [at] yahoo [dot] com)

The information for the bridge located here is incorrect. The bridge that is here crosses Ten Mile Creek and is only about 30 feet long. It is a wood stringer bridge with bolted on guardrails. The information for the bridge that is listed on this page is for somewhere else and I haven't been able to find a physical through truss bridge that is nearly 90 feet long that crosses Sweet Grass Creek. Enclosed is one photo of the present bridge. NBI lists this bridge correctly it appears.
