Lily Creek Bridge No. 2
Posted March 16, 2014, by Elliott Johnson (elliottsgon15 [at] hotmail [dot] com)

I think your coordinates are wrong. The bridge found at this location is the a bridge that I have created a page for and was not replaced. The TR 157 bridge at Lily Creek sits abandoned in its original place unless the replacement is a new alignment found at different coordinates.
