Jade Avenue Bridge
Posted May 9, 2018, by Don Morrison

Plan to get some photos soon.

The Iowa historic Bridges site is kind of weak on the details, with incorrect photo captions and, in the construction types section, incorrect titles (Baltimore for Bowstring, Camelback for Cantilever).

Hopefully the info on this bridge is correct.
