The Catoctin Creek Bridge crosses over Catoctin Creek in Loudoun County, Virginia.

It currently carries Virginia Route 673, also known as Featherbed Lane. The bridge was originally located at a crossing of nearby Goose Creek, carrying the Leesburg Turnpike, later Virginia State Route 7, but was relocated in 1932 to its present location at Catoctin Creek.

The Catoctin Creek Bridge was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on June 24, 1974.

Description

The Catoctin Creek Bridge is a nine-panel iron Pratt truss bridge, first erected about 1889. The bridge was fabricated by the Variety Iron Works of Cleveland, Ohio. The bridge is one span of 159 feet (48 m), with a roadway width of 11.18 feet (3.41 m). The deck is made of timbers.

The Catoctin Creek Bridge is one of the longest metal truss bridges of the nineteenth century remaining in Virginia.
