Chicken Farm Road Bridge
This bridge was featured in the 1988 movie "Bettlejuice" when a wooden cover was added to it to make it appear as a covered bridge. For a few frames during the car accident scene the Canton Bridge builders plate can be seen attached to the original lattice guardrails inside the bridge. At some point after 1988 the lattice guardrails were replaced with standard modern guardrails.
Despite the association with the movie, this bridge was notable as an excellent example of a simple small scale bridge built by a renowned bridge company.
