Branch Rock Creek Bridge
Posted June 13, 2013, by Paul A. Valentine (hogleg44-40 [at] sbcglobal [dot] net)

A Stone Arch Bridge is no longer at this location. It appears to have been replaced with a new concrete bridge.

However, farther south on this road, is a Through Plate-Girder Auto Bridge along side of a new concrete bridge. This bridge is just past the Acme Brick Plant.
