Constructed in 1972, the bridge is located west of the Lower Rush Creek Campground on Forest Road 41N11.
During construction, the stream was diverted from its original channel and now runs under the bridge at a diagonal. As a result, there is wood-water contact on the western abutment and backwall, even during low flows.
During high-water events, there is scouring around the foundation. The project is intended to stabilize the right abutment of the Johnson Creek Bridge, as well as restore the site so the stream flows perpendicular to the direction of the bridge.
