The existence of the South Yadkin River Bridge was relatively brief, as it was washed away in a freshet in 1852, after only a quarter of a century of service. The site of this bridge is uncertain; no stone piers mark its site. The South Yadkin River joins the main Yadkin River northeast of Salisbury. The crossing of the South Yadkin at or near the present US 601 bridge is most likely, but a location farther downstream near “the Point,” where the South Yadkin enters the Yadkin (site of the short-lived town of Clinton), is also a possibility.
