Cravath Creek Bridge

Photos 

The Wood Pedestrian Walkway

This bridge is less than half a block east of the Whitewater River Bridge. It predates the Whitewater River Bridge by 10 years, and like it, was widened with steel beams. The bridge is surrounded by private property, making it difficult to get a shot of the underside.
