end of the road (before "T-ing" with Well Road).





The Sock Road Bridge (also called the Westphal Bridge), is a small bridge that spans over the Beaver Dam River, about a mile northeast of the village of Lowell.

The bridge that originally sat on Sock road was a metal truss bridge, built in 1893. Before it was demolished in 1980, it was one of the oldest metal truss bridges in Wisconsin.

The current bridge on Sock Road, is a less "flashy", two-lane bridge.




  • It is said, that if you park your car on the bridge, the railings will drip blood.




  • Unknown.





    Some sites incorrectly name the bridge in Lowell as the Sock Road Bridge. It isn't.
    The bridge in the village of Lowell, is pretty cool, but as far as I have read, the bridge that
    has activity, is on Sock Road.
