Mullica River Bridge
Posted July 24, 2011, by Barry Caselli (criterion1974 [at] yahoo [dot] com)

This bridge was replaced with a very nice replica. It took a long time to build, and people were getting very impatient. The old bridge was rated at 7 tons. I'm not sure about the new one. Sorry, I have no pictures, though I could take some at any time, since the bridge is near here.

This bridge carries CR 563 over the Mullica River, which is the county line.
