Wapsipinicon River Bridge
Posted June 18, 2012, by Don Morrison (bacchus [at] mchsi [dot] com)

A few pictures of the Wapsi bridge at 100th street. This road is actually the Howard/Chicasaw County line and the 100th must be a Chickasaw County designation. It would be 210th street if it followed Howard County's numbering system.

A tree is growing at the edge of the deck.
