Route 613 Pratt Pony Truss Bridge

This one is exactly like another one torned down 3 miles to the west on 613, replaced with a concrete deck bridge. It is also exactly like two others in Scott County, VA., one a mile away across Copper Creek on County Road 682, and the other across Copper Creek on County Road 627.
