Willow Road Bridge
Posted December 5, 2017, by J.M. Armstrong (jmarmstr [at] gmail [dot] com)

I am pretty sure you have the wrong geolocation on your map. This bridge was actually farther north on Willow Road on part of a now vacated section of the road east of US 421. Willow Road used to connect to Little Eagle Creek avenue, and the bridge collapsed over Little Eagle Creek. When the bridge collapsed, the road was closed and converted into private driveways on each side of Little Eagle Creek.
