Fletcher Estate Bridge
Posted December 30, 2012, by J.P. (wildcatjon2000 [at] gmail [dot] com)

This bridge is abandoned and is blocked off with a pile of dead trees on the school side and the community on the other side is gated. This bridge has a pony arch in the middle. along with an open spandrel underneath.
