Welfare road-Plum Creek Bridge

Never expected to see this bridge on this site,Dana and Kay.In all of the times i have been over this bridge i never noticed the dam.During my travels this summer when fishing i'll have to stop and check out the creek for any fishing along with looking at the bridge.Fishing is a good excuse for looking at bridges while fishing,isn't it?
