More likely a Tee beam not stringer.

Visited here & photographed w/ my son Ken Ballard, Oct 22, 2017. Normally, I'm not too interested in this type of bridge, but the plaques really add a sense of history for the 'state of the art' early 1900's transportation infrastructure, bridges and routing of roads. The only thing missing here was an old style roadside park.

I also like to help do my part on filling in the blanks on this great website. I wasn't really expecting even one bridge, instead I find 3 + an old culvert.

These back roads are now bypassed but are still beautiful side trips, especially in the fall colors. Amazingly, this road is in very good condition.
