The shack located on the bridge crossing Smith Creek on Castle Hayne Road near McRae Street is the operator house, according to NCDOT officials.

The crossing is a swing bridge built to pivot close to 90 degrees horizontally to allow water traffic to pass. The bridge was built in 1931 and rehabilitated in 1962. The swing is inoperable, according to a listing on the Internet.

The bridge stretches 248 feet.
