History & significance

Bridge L4013 is a single-span, semicircular stone-arch bridge constructed in 1915 to carry a single lane of vehicular traffic on Rooster Valley Road over a dry run in Houston County. The structural arch and stone headwalls/wingwalls are comprised of coursed-ashlar, buff-colored limestone. The bridge is significant as the only surviving, authenticated example of an early-twentieth-century, state-designed, stone-arch bridge.
