Tunkhannock Creek Bridge
Posted August 25, 2008, by Seth Gaines (sethgaines [at] gmail [dot] com)

This bridge is gone. The road is closed and the abutment on the South side appears to have washed out into the creek. The marker on the map is not in the right place. The marker denotes a very small (maybe 5') derelict timber bridge on TR 407.
