CRCX - Woodbridge Creek Bridge
Posted October 23, 2016, by dave (cdstiles [at] yahoo [dot] com)

This bridge has not opened in almost 50 years that I can remember...The Operators control booth was on the State Street Bridge right next to this bridge. The State Street bridge was a similar type of drawbridge that occasionally opened to allow barges heading up the Woodbridge river. The State Street Bridge was replaced by a cement non movable bridge around the late 1980's
