Holes Creek Bridge
Posted July 19, 2015, by James McCray (jamesinslocomb [at] yahoo [dot] com)

One can see with this bridge, it looks like it used to be a real cable suspension bridge, but it was recently rehabbed with stringers to make the bridge now to rest wholly on the new stringers. I am quite certain that this is not the case where the bridge is a new bridge made to just look like a suspension bridge. I'm wondering several things: Am I right about thinking that this bridge is real, just now has new girders? How old is this bridge? Was it relocated here or was it always here? Does anyone know about the the history of the bridge?
