Inventory: Lists | Log | References | Condensed | Search

This is a list of all 3 bridges from the suspension bridge inventory crossing Pearl River. Please note that different rivers with the same name will be grouped together. For example, selecting 'Bear Creek' shows bridges across several different Bear Creeks. Also, similarly named rivers are grouped separately. For example, 'River Dee' (UK) bridges are grouped separately from 'Dee River' (Australia) bridges. Wherever you see a "Bridgemeister ID" number you can click it to isolate the bridge on its own page.

It is in rough shape but you can still walk on it if you are careful. Vandals have started fires on the bridge span damaging the planks. Some planks are missing. There is also considerable graffiti about."
