Good morning Dana and Kay.Sorry i couldn't assist on this bridge but thanks to Clark nobody would have realized this was the bridge including me.I am familiar with this area having been raised in Quakertown Pa and enjoying the scenery in the fall and winter meaning fishing.I might have been over this bridge and not known it in my travels.Anyway,thanks again for the work you do on these bridges i do locate.

It looks like this one was replaced in 2008 after the NBI information was added.

The creek names around here are odd. Aquashicola Creek is a small tributary to Buckwha Creek but the name of the combined stream is Aquashicola. NBI also mentions a Princess Creek which is not on the 1960 quad.
