Clarks Run Bridge

I removed the streetview. You are correct: this bridge was incorporated into the concrete arch structure that now carries 322 over Clarks Run.

I'm a little puzzled as to which bridge is being described here: Is it the former concrete arch structure that had carried the old alignment of US-22/322 over the creek, or is it the Red Hill Road Bridge?

The concrete arch bridge for the old alignment was incorporated into the structure that now carries US-22/322, with extensions constructed in the mid-1990's.

The Red Hill Road stone-arch bridge was abandoned in place during this highway project and still exists. It may be visited by driving the frontage road along the highway.
