Visited and photographed this bridge on Sunday, July 6, 2008. The bridge is in excellent condition and is heavily travelled. For just being a deck-truss it was still fun to see and photograph! Pictures easily done from the under belly, but the White River is still too high at this location too. Saw a large number of canoes and numerous people fishing at this location.
