Description 

This is the 2nd of 2 pony trusses over Nickelsen Creek off of County Road 550W. It is located just South of the current roadway bridge on a private lane that runs to the East. I saw what I believed to be a pony truss on satellite imagery at this location and confirmed it in July 2011.

There is a strong possibility that this is former Adams County Bridge #11. Before being replaced it was located on CR 1100N over Nickelsen Creek.
