New Steer Creek bridge replaces dilapidated structure

Old bridge was on worst bridge list

The Apple Farm (Rush) area was once a bustling community with a store, post office,school and lots of farms, now with a few remaining residents.

The cost of the project was about $853,000.

The current residents can rest a little easier now with their antiquated access bridge across Steer Creek being replaced.

For years, fire trucks and heavy equipment could not easily be accessed except by the back way from Sassafras Ridge.

The bridge had been declared as one of the worst bridges in the Mountain State.
