Kilmore Creek Bridge
Posted February 27, 2011, by Richard Tekulve (CANOEINDIANA [at] YAHOO [dot] COM)

About 5-6 years ago I canoed the lower five miles of Kilmore Creek. I don't remember any older bridges on this route. My journal/notes on this trip tell me that this bridge is a newer type generic concrete bridge. I do not know the year of construction.
