Coal Creek Bridge
Posted January 19, 2014, by K. A. Erickson

I think it's the one listed but there is no map for in the 1992 NBI. The 1925 Coal Creek NE 200 one. It appears the land east of the bridge has been redone to accommodate baseball fields. The road could easily been rerouted over a new bridge and the former allowed to remain in place for pedestrians.

The only other 1992 NBI listing is for a c. 1950s pony truss that crosses Coal Creek in the Right Hand Canyon area. Seems to be a site of construction on satellite, that is gone.
