Other Darby Creek Crossings
The Little and Big Darby Creeks merge on the eastside
of Georgesville in SW Franklin County. This bridge above is for
Gardiner Rd, over the Big Darby Creek (just after the creeks split).
The bridge has some asthetics value for the guard rail and bumper
on the ends of the supports.
Speaking of Gardiner Rd, just on the south side of
the bridge above, the road dead ends into Alkire Rd (who's bridge
over the Darby Creeks is even more blase, so I didn't bother photographing
it). If look above, you can see that the county truly does reuse
it's signs for other purposes.
This bridge is located past the northern end of Harrisburg-Georgesville
Rd in Battelle-Darby Creek Metro Park (south of Georgesville).
I was unsucessful in finding any possible bridge remnants, I did
find this along one of the paths nearby.
While I couldn't find a former northern extention of
Harrisburg-Georgesville Rd into Georgesville, I did notice this
bridge for the same road, crossing the same waterway, in Darbydale
(still in SW Franklin County).
