Black Creek Drawbridge
Posted May 20, 2020, by Deborah McSwain (mcswaindeborah30 [at] gmail [dot] com)

The map location and water crossing info for this bridge is incorrect. This was over North Fork of *Black Creek*(not the St Johns River) on Blanding Blvd(SR21), Middleburg (unincorporated). The present bridge is the 3rd one at or near that location. The photo here *might* be of a bridge that crossed many years ago on present day U.S. Hwy 17, at the mouth of Black Creek where it empties into the St. Johns River. The present day bridges in both locations are newer, multi-lane bridges.
