Perhaps it dates back to when the road was originally established.

1817 is the date given by the National Bridge Inventory.

This bridge is a natural rock formation with some extra support stones on the edge of the top span. Not sure where the date of construction is listed as 1817, I would like to know where this was found. I live within about 1/2 mile of this natural bridge which has a sign saying such. It is a landmark of the county and visited by many over the years and continuing visitors as of this date.
