Maunie Railroad Bridge
Posted March 8, 2018, by Malcolm Dymott (mpd109uk [at] yahoo [dot] co [dot] uk)

From the Progressive Railrioading website 8 March 2018 (and local news websites on previous two days);

". . . .U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) has announced a $10 million TIGER grant to rebuild approaches to the Maunie Railroad Bridge in Posey County, Indiana. Built in 1926, the bridge's timber approaches on both the Indiana and Illinois sides are in "dire need of replacement," according to a press release issued by Donnelly's office. "
