Wildcat Creek IN 75 Bridge
Posted September 28, 2007, by RL Bozell (jrbozell45 [at] hotmail [dot] com)

09/28/07 Just reopened this past week - new paint job. Just west of this bridge you can see, when trees are bare, abutments of former Cutler covered bridge (on 500S -closed going west from hwy 75).
