Oaks Creek Bridge
Posted June 25, 2019, by Anonymous

this bridge saved by demolition by the County in 2006-2007 by the residents of Toddsville and interested persons. Money was donated, the wooden boards wee replaced, barriers put there so only available as a walking,- wheelchair accessible- bridge. Can fish off it. Accessible from a turn off Greenough Road.
