Bridge History: Also known as Coal Creek Bridge #2. The low original cost is probably due to reuse of materials that James Myers was paid $300.00 to remove from the creek.

The materials may have been from the Lodi #3, (#33c), Bridge or some other local one. There are two grades upstream from the present covered bridge. Both point north toward Silverwood.
