D&W Wapsipinicon River Bridge
Posted February 20, 2013, by Dylan VanAntwerp (dylan_vanantwerp [at] live [dot] com)

This bridge has been heavily rebuilt in the recent past. The western abutment and pier are new concrete, and the stone eastern abutment has new concrete work on it. The wooden ties and beams are all very new.
