McClure Road Bridge
Posted October 25, 2019, by Matthew Vogel (matthewv1016 [at] gmail [dot] com)

I visited this bridge recently and went magnet fishing. I believe that the east end of the bridge is private property if anyone wants to try to visit this make it know that they need to enter from the west. The water is about 1 foot deep and is very clear. When I magnet fished we find pieces of the bridge and an old motor. The east end of the road is blocked off likely intentionally by the owner of the property I just walked around it and about 200 yards back is the bridge the road on the west goes straight to the bridge with almost no walking distance. There are several holes in the bridge so watch your step.
