Seven Mile Creek Bridge
Posted January 28, 2011, by Wayne Grodkiewicz (wgrodkiewi [at] aol [dot] com)

Hi,

During a trip today (28 January 2011) I noted that the 2 or 3 bridges that cross Seven Mile Creek on CR227 have all been replaced with rather boring slab style bridges. The railroad ponies all still exist. I did not that you did not have the pony truss on Swann Bailey Road Listed. I could not get a picture of it today because the weather was not good and there was no place to stop without getting stuck.
