Regarding Goldsborough Creek Bridge.
The 57 foot bridge which consists of a 55 foot half through ribbed concrete arch, and rests on concrete abutments with timber pile bulkheads, was constructed by MacRae Brothers in 1923. It is 24 feet wide, curb to curb, and carries a sidewalk along the outside of each arch.
The Goldsborough Creek Bridge is one of five concrete tied arches within the State. It is the shortest of the five, and like the Indian Timothy Memorial Bridge in Garfield County, there are no horizontal struts above the roadway connecting the two arches. The Goldsborough Creek Bridge is one of five concrete tied arches within the State. Although there are examples of tied arches that were built throughout the 20's and 30's, this concrete arch form has remained rare.
