Baileys Creek Bridge


From the highway

The bridge is hard to see. It is located on private property.

This bridge is on a long-abandoned roadbed of the shoreline highway. Traces of this abandoned roadbed exist in several places, but for the most part is just a raised earthwork. The bridge remains, decades later.

I think the bridge Robert shot may be over Beattie Creek, to the north of where the GPS pin is.

I grew up in the house at Bailey Creek formerly owned by M.A Bailey you have it wrong, there is no ill fated forgotten bridge there, the only bridge is across M-35, there is a place you can cross the creek but it is not man made, I lived there in the late 60s to late 70s and wandered the woods nearly every day of the year
