Carden Creek Bridge
Posted July 4, 2010, by Fredrick Garcia (fandsgarcia [at] gmail [dot] com)

Visited this bridge on 4 July '10 at 3 p.m. Carden Creek was not flowing. Water level was very low due to drastic drawdown of Lake Nimrod. Bridge is barely noticeable from road surface. I will add a photo to this posting that shows the metal plate with the AHTD bridge number and its location.
