Duck Creek (abandoned) bridge
Posted April 18, 2017, by Mike Tewkesbury (gb_packards [at] yahoo [dot] com)

Concrete Bridge abandoned when US 21 was rerouted. The owner permitted me to take photos of the bridge which is continuing to deteriorate at a rapid rate. The eastern approach ramp has broken away from the structure and I was not able to completely cross on foot. I was told that the 2004-05 flood severely exploited the structure's integrity. It was built following the 1913 flood that took out about every bridge in the county.
