Facts 

Overview
Culvert bridge over Minnow Creek on East Wabash River Road in Logansport
Location
Logansport, Cass County, Indiana
Status
Open to traffic
Future prospects
Maybe preserved in place with damage. Large concrete structure East of culvert that appears to be the old bridge that has been filled in underneath. Minnow Creek looks like it could have been rerouted to new culvert which immediately dumps into Wabash River.
History
Built 1993. Must have been built as part of a reroute of Minnow Creek as old Concrete bridge appears to be Immediately East of Culvert with underside filled in and broken side wall on North side.
Design
simple triple set of metal drains running underneath road, structure beside it is all concrete filled in underneath, but could simply be retaining wall, I am unsure. It has sidewalls for several feet, but North side has 6 to 10 foot section that apparently been damaged by a car and fallen into Wabash River for which this creek immediately dumps into at this location.
