Deep Fork River Bridge


Lally column pier on one side, concrete pier on the other. Was this bridge a 1908 replacement for an even older bridge?

Another example of an overpriced slab along with a little pavement and striping to make it look like an important highway... All on a road that is little more than a dirt trail that if accurate sees 100 cars a day!

I've seen this more times than I care to remember!

Sadly, the old bridge is now gone. Replaced with a boring concrete slab. Taken 9/29/18

After consulting my atlas and then the Nuyaka USGS quad, I see that the river is clearly mislabeled in the Shearar "The Road" atlas. It is the Deep Fork.

I think the location on this is a little off. It should be Nuyaka Creek.
