I thought the south bridge was the old one. Looks like they are both noteworthy.

Steve I checked it out Friday. I took a few pics from the golf course driveway. Maybe you can get up close?

Well the bridge itself is in the golf course.

There's also I think might be a bridge from an old alignment of IL 83 south of the course.

Luke, I think the bridge in the street view is a golf course bridge. Move farther south down the road. I'm not sure if you can see it. I'll add it to my punch list.
