283rd Avenue Bridge

Description 

This bridge was replaced in 2001. The original NBI listing incorrectly listed the bridge as being in T. 70 N., R. 16 W., Sec. 30, which would have put it in the middle of Sundown Lake. When the bridge was replaced in 2001, the data were corrected.

With a tip o' the hat to the Appanoose County Engineer's Office for their help in locating this bridge.
