Inventory: Lists | Log | References | Condensed | Search

This is a list of the only bridge from the suspension bridge inventory crossing Sugar Creek. 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.

  • IMB states, "The original bridge collapsed into Sugar Creek in 1917... the state's Department of Natural Resources promptly replaced the old with current structure."
  • James Rader writes in 2008: "Three years ago flooding came up high enough to allow a couple of uprooted Sycamore trees to hit the bridge ripping out a large section of the wood railing and flooring from the middle of the bridge. Bridge was immediately closed. Structural analysis was completed and repairs were made including all new floor planks. Bridge is in great condition and should serve for many many more years to come."
