Old Bridge Supports, Long King Creek
Posted December 12, 2015, by Tom (Dryflyshaman [at] gmail [dot] com)

that is one of the old FM 1988 Bridge supports.

I do not remember what exact year the concrete Bridge replaced the old steel bridge.

If you go upstream from there around the next bend you will find old wooden pilings for what I always understood was a railroad bridge.
