The Winburn Way Bridge is a reconstructed bridge following the devastating flood of January 1997. The flood damaged many nearby businesses along Ashland Creek as well as the creek banks and multiple structures, including the previous bridge at this location. Shortly after the flood of 1997, construction began on this current bridge and it was officially dedicated to the citizens of Ashland in January 1998.
The plaque dedication reads:
