I am trying to determine who the architect/designer/builder that built this bridge.
I've heard that Henry Waeltz might have had something to do with the construction.
Yes Nick... We jokingly refer to this one as the "Pumping Iron" Bridge! (See pic #2)
That's a beauty!!
When I was a kid we used to climb around on an enormous dead tree that had fallen in the woods. Seeing this bridge and it's club house made me think how fun it would have been to climb around on a bridge.
Someone had a clubhouse along one side of the river right next to that bridge and decided that was the spot to put his weight room. The gravel road leading to one end of the bridge has a tendency to be flooded, especially from April to June. The other side of the river bank is all private property owned by a mega farm.
Yes, you've heard of "cast iron" and "wrought iron" but this bridge is built from a seldom used material called "pumping iron."
Looks like us bridgehunters that might be out of shape from the long winter should visit this bridge (pic #2-hi res.)
