Bridge History: Also known as Coal Creek Bridge #3.

This may have been the bridge destroyed in the 1875 flood. James Myers was paid $300.00 for taking a bridge out of the creek at Lodi. He probably used these materials to build the Lodi #2, Bridge. There is a grade on Coal Creek about 100 yards upstream from the existing bridge pointing north toward the Silverwood Road.
