West Fork Twelvepole Creek Bridge
Posted September 15, 2019, by Mike Kerkau (mjkerkau [at] gmail [dot] com)

Worth noting that the 2014 rehabilitation was a substantial alteration; the girders are, obviously, retained, but railings were added, and the previous timber deck was replaced with a paved deck. (Highways Through History has photos of both before and after the repair.)

Assuming that Google is accurate, it would appear that this, too, used to be on the old Norfolk & Western Railway line.

There is one more crossing along this road; it too is a pony plate girder like the 1907 bridge. This one is instead a deck girder.
