Wapsipinicon River Bridge

Description 

Drove this road tonight, 24 November 2014. Neighboring landowner stated that the old truss was replaced by a railroad flatcar bridge although the latest NBI entry says steel culvert. The road dips low east of the present crossing and is subject to flooding. Current Bing imagery shows bridge missing.
