Inscription. The McClure Road or Wilderness Way crossed a permanent stream at this point. An “S” bridge has been placed here for utility, flood and wash control. Originally the bridge consisted of large granite boulders as buttress walls, over this was placed supporting timbers with a plank floor.

This bridge was taken out when the County tiled ditch was put in drying up the stream in the early 1900s. The boulders were removed by farm operators for passage of equipment around 1916. The erosion control bridge and plantings were started in 1948- 49.
