Description 

This is the third in a series of phantom bridges along State Route 1 in Dearborn County, Indiana. This particular bridge was probably built around 1917. The bridge is 20 feet long, 12 feet wide and spans a small creek that empties into Salt Fork Creek. The Phantom bridge once carried the former old Lawrenceburg Brookville Road but was bypassed sometime in the 1930s when Route 1 was realigned.

It looks like a concrete rigid frame to me.

It definitely isn't an open spandral arch but what is it? Is is an arch floored box culvert?

This isn’t an open spandrel arch
