Conococheague Creek Bridge
Posted September 11, 2010, by Jodi Christman

I drove from 995 to Patton Rd. (on west side of creek) and discovered that there is no way to access the whereabouts of this removed bridge. The road was blocked almost 1,000 ft. up from the creek. I was sorry I couldn't even at least see an old pier. From what I can tell on Google Satellite Maps, there is no road on the east side of the creek to gain access from the east. Bummer.
