Lake Creek Bridge - The Lake Creek Covered Bridge is often referred to as the Nelson Mountain Bridge because it is located on Nelson Mountain Road. Like many covered bridges, both the upper and lower chords are one piece old-growth timbers. The lower timbers measure 14` x 14` x 111 feet and the upper timbers measure 12` x 12` x 79 feet. The bridge was rehabilitated in 1984. Contractors replaced the wooden flooring with pre-cast concrete slab decking. Because the concrete flooring and center pier do not support the trusses, a crane was required to slide the slabs into place. The wooden abutments and trestle approaches were also replaced with concrete material. Stream: Lake Creek Length: 105 feet (32 m) Year Constructed: 1928 Nearest Town: Greenleaf Located on Nelson Mountain Road, just off Highway 36, 30 miles west of Highway 99.
