Description 

This bridge is identical to the Roberts Creek bridge in St Olaf (http://bridgehunter.com/ia/clayton/10200/), except for a little more surface rust. Sides were too steep to get underneath, but from the top the bridge appears to be in very good condition, with the only alterations being replacement of a couple of rivets with bolts. This road is very quiet with very little traffic.

Farmersburg Road Bridge
Posted October 14, 2020, by Matt Lohry

Visited this bridge right after the one in St. Olaf; still extant and looking to be in pretty good shape. Gotta love Iowa!
