Rentz Bridge, Elmodel, Baker County

Rentz Bridge is on Rentz Bridge Road over the Ichauway-Nochaway Creek. I’m not sure when the bridge was built, but I do know that the first repair request to the county was filed in 1925. The bridge was rebuilt in 1934 by the Austin Brothers Bridge Company for $5,630.00 of steel material covered in concrete. The 1934 taxpayer dollar payed the fee. The bridge was finished in 1956 and Rentz Bridge Road was classified by the state as a county paved road and the state took up further repairs.
