Barkers Creek Road Bridge
Posted May 23, 2012, by WLEM (warren [dot] lemay2 [at] mac [dot] com)

This bridge has sat unused since the 1970s or 80s, and there is are a few other 1920s bridges in the county, all built around 1922 and 1923. There is a one lane concrete bridge on Greens Creek Road built in 1922, a two lane concrete bridge on Allen Street in Sylva built in 1922, and an abandoned bridge at the beginning of Lower North Fork Road that used to be a one-lane concrete highway bridge built in 1922.
