Early example of concrete tee beam-type bridge construction that became the norm, to replace the more expensive building of steel truss and arch bridges in the mid to late 1930's. According to nearby residents, the original crossing was a road that followed, then crossed Dry Hollow Branch on a ford just north of the current bridge. Bridge built 1938, then rebuilt 1990. Scheduled for replacement 2017.
