This bridge is on Lake Rd in the town of Bradford. At the US 67 intersection, travel E and go left at the road fork. There are two spans to this bridge, with the larger span (the near one in the image) having been crudely cut apart with a blowtorch and dumped in the creek N of the bridge (parts of the bridge are exposed during low water.) The E span still exists (with no decking) and can be reached from the next creek crossing S of the bridge.
