Comments:
When the bridge was standing, it connected what is now called Shickshinny Lake Road to Waterton Road (both SR4006 - LR40076). What is now Route 239 formerly joined Waterton Road as the base of a "T" intersection, then turning left to cross over the bridge. After the bridge was crossed, Shickshinney road was straight ahead and a right turn was what is now called Mill Street (T474) which is the old section of Route 239 on that side.
