Ugly old bridge on the old Highway 86 route from Hillsborough to Yanceyville. Notable in part because this was one of NCs first designated State Highways, designated NC 14 in 1922 (re-numbered to 86 in 1940, and NC 14 was re-assiged to a route farther West). This bridge and several similar bridges dotted the landscape from Chapel Hill in the middle of the state to Danville, Virginia in the North. Few of these original bridges remain.
