Branch Salt Creek Bridge
Posted July 4, 2011, by Beau Deen (bdeen [at] dmcs [dot] us)

Bridge still exists yet has suffered a fair amount of damage over the years. The deck seems to recieve regular maintenance (pine planks still have heavy, like-new, creasote odor) and the local telephone company still uses the bridge to support its cable running over the creek.
