Thanks, Dana and Kay

Searched for other listings of this historic (albeit modified) bridge on this site, but did not find any, hence this listing. Spotted from the road as I was driving by, great old thing, very happy locals had the thought to rehab it and make it very accessible to the public.

Posted October 14, 2017

This is a beauty - beaten up, but still going strong(ish)

Posted October 14, 2017

2017 - this old beauty has been replaced with something QUITE less interesting.

Wow. 1st visit. Little thing is really neat, perfect spot for it in this city park.

Posted October 14, 2017

just saw listing for wood bridge - "Oxide Rd. plank bridge"

Posted October 14, 2017

the 3rd crossing and northernmost creek crossing on Oxide Rd.

Posted October 14, 2017

the second crossing of the creek over Oxide Rd.

Posted October 14, 2017

Bridge is lost. As you proceed north up Oxide Rd., the road crosses the creek a total of 3 times, the southmost where the pin is currently located is now a low-water crossing, the next one north is a wooden bridge, and the last one northmost is another low water crossing

new(ish) coat of paint? like how it stands out - was not searching for it but it jumped right out while driving by today

Posted October 9, 2017

This one is a goner - via satellite clearly see the abutments that used to hold the missing bridge

Posted October 2, 2017

Re-visit, posted new pics with friends only to get better perspective of the grand size of this beauty. GI-GANTIC,and great elevation.

Posted October 2, 2017

Clark, I'm not seeing the pony you spoke of visible in a satellite image, this is the 2nd time I visited this weekend and I posted a photo of what is at the current pinned location - Private property, received permission, concrete creek bridge, not a pony.....thoughts?

Posted October 2, 2017

That Google image of the span in the river is awesome
