Old US-40 Bridge
Posted July 10, 2016, by Kim Harvey

Only possible to get a photo in the winter months. I was with another person and it was hell to go through the old roadbed for a photo in the summer months due to thick brush right before the bridge. It is view able from Route 40 itself but best viewing is in the winter.
