Attached are photos of this bridge from Nov. 2007. In one photo a man is walking on the lower chord above Hot Springs Creek. I see people fishing from this spot regularly. A greenway path/trail is on the left bank and Shady Grove Rd. is on the right bank. The rail line is still active. Bridge is approx 100 feet long. Rails are approx 20 feet above creek level.
