No History known at present. Found this bridge accidentally while driving by CR550 just west of Brown County Airport. Saw a large warning sign, "Bridge Closed 1.25 miles ahead, so I turned around to investigate. At the end of CR550, on your right is the old abandoned section of CR925N. Another Sign says, "Road Closed 1000 Feet". You will need to park, the road is not fit for vehicles. Yet another sign says "Road Closed 500 feet". If you're a real photographer, this is a cool spot to take pics.
