Mitchell-Griggs Road Bridge
Posted November 15, 2011, by J.P.

Long story short, I believe this to be the location, If you want reasoning I will be happy to explain, I'm from Dixon though so I called my father who is down there and he is going to ask around to see if anyone knows of the old road, and If he comes back with information that changes it, I'll update the location. Also added the builder into the Builder edit box.
