I just figured it out... The reason only half of this bridge is painted, and the other half is rusting away, is because The middle of the river is the county line. Des Moines County seems to be taking better care of their half of the bridge than Lee County.
Visited Sep. '07. If correct bridge the town of Augusta is on the north end of bridge.
