Significance: Between Yorktown and Williamsburg, the Colonial Parkway crosses Cub Creek on top of the reconstructed walls of a colonial mill dam. In 1931-1932, the largest of the Unit I drainage structures was built to manage the overflow from Jones Mill Pond to Cub Creek. An 18' arch culvert was constructed at the center of the dam with a 59' spillway to the creek side discharge. Consistent with other structures along the road, the concrete structure is clad with colonial style brickwork.
