Yancey Road Bridge
Posted May 10, 2017, by Michael Quiet (mquiet [at] gmail [dot] com)

I've been looking for this bridge for quite some time, as it was listed in older publications of extant Lenticular truss bridges and I was persistently optimistic that it had to be somewhere. Otherwise though, there isn't too much info to go on. It appears to be on private property of a ranch. In older info this was referred to as the Yancey Road Bridge, so either this is an old alignment of the road or the bridge was relocated from the adjacent Yancey Road.

Hopefully a bridgehunter from that region can find some more info on this bridge, or maybe knock on a door and see about getting some pictures!
