I corrected the coordinates for the location per your local knowledge. I am not sure the coordinates and the location description match up, but I took your numbers.

This bridge location on your map is too far north of it's actual location. The bridge was located at 4746'28.7"N 12157'58.1"W serving as a connection between present-day N.E. 165th Street and N.E. Cherry Valley Road at the north limits of the town of Duvall. The bridge was opened for service in June 1906 and served until a new bridge replaced it in 1917. The structure was razed in the early 1920's, but pile stubs and concrete chunks can still be seen at the site during low water in late summer.
