Remains of Civilian Conservation Corps Camp S-68 Pivot Bridge

From Mike High's The C&O Canal Companion:

The pier in the middle of the canal [at mile 9.9] was once part of a pivot bridge. The knoll left by the road embankment offers a view of the remains of the circular pivot mechanism. The bridge was built in 1941 to provide access to a Civilian Conservation Corps camp. The canal company had long since ceased operations, but a pivot bridge was still needed because the National Park Service was operating barges in the canal in this area.

According to the Civilian Conservation Corps Alumni web site, this would correspond to project S-68, company 325-C, founded 10/11/1933, of Bethesda MD.
