Description 

It should be made clear that I am guessing this is where this old bridge sits based on the photographer, Clyde Laughlin's description. However, based on topography this bridge looks like it sits over water near a bend in the road on each side which makes me believe it might not be in the actual Concord Narrows, but up north. When I get a chance I will explore the area to see where this lost bridge once stood.
