In about 1950, the iron bridge had been condemned to a single lane of traffic on hwy 41. One way traffic, northbound for awhile, then southbound for a while. All was controlled by a man in a hut with a switch to a traffic light on the Fulton country end of the bridge. My dad was one of those men. He worked this job after his farming years were over due to crop failures.

I canít find any photos of the bridge from that time.

This bridge has been replaced with a new bridge in 2015. The new, much wider, bridge has 3 lanes of traffic in each direction and a curb divider down the middle.
