Lost through truss bridge that as of 9/18/2013, was demolished and in the process of being replaced with a newer structure.
"No builder's plaque or plans record the name of the manufacturer of this bridge or its date of construction. The state's bridge maintenance records note that unspecified change were made to it in 1959 and list that as its erection date. The bridge is clearly older and probably dates to about 1920. There is no indication, documentary or physical, that the bridge has ever been relocated or significantly altered."-NCDOT
