Coon Creek Bridge
Posted March 23, 2009, by Randall Houp (ghostbridgehunter [at] yahoo [dot] com)

Visited & photographed this bridge on Wednesday, March 18th. This had to be one of the best days for bridgehunting; the weather was beautiful. This bridge has had recent work done on it and is in excellent condition for its age. Sign on bridge reads, "NO TRUCKS", but this will no doubt be ignored.
