Description 

The two trusses which make up this two-span bridge were moved to this site in 1961 from two different locations. The shorter truss was formerly located in Page County on Route 340 where it crossed the North Fork of the Shenandoah River. The longer truss was moved from nearby Bridgewater in Rockingham County.

The bridge is gone as of 2/12. Will be replaced by a boring overpass.
