Commentator spots historic detail in bridge debris

Notes missing iron support columns. Remembers when Russell Creek Bridge was the jumping off place to Burton Ridge. Commends CJE for raising littering awareness, but calls for incarceration of few littering Goobers for bad behavior

Good shot Ed, had you looked a little closer you would have noticed the creek has washed away and exposed the two iron support columns base for the old bridge.This is the first time in my almost 58 years I remember seeing these.

Does Mr.Watson or anyone else intrested have any vintage photos of the old bridge there on 206?

Who would have believed that the jumping off place to Burton Ridge would become the most heavily traveled local access road in the county?

Thanks to the County Judge and her staff for making litter awareness a reality this year.We have reached out to a few of the Goobers and have shown them the ill of their littering ways.

Not to get exicited just yet, there are several among us whom need to be incarcerated for their continued bad behavior.Comments above re photo 40671 Timber under the bridge
