Mulkey Creek NE 671 Bridge
Posted November 29, 2011, by David Smothers (davidsupreme [at] embarqmail [dot] com)

As you can see from photo 1, this road seems largely abandoned... bridge is still intact, but it looks as if the road has been abandoned by the county and landowners have been using the bridge for tractor traffic. North of the bridge, the road seems impassable for normal cars, only 4 wheel drive and tractors would be able to travel the road.
