Description 

Stood next to the hydroelectric dam on what would have been the 211th Street crossing. At least one pier remains and the small building seen next to the bridge in one of the photos still stands as well. The plaques suggest that the bridge was either built by the Indiana Bridge Company or the Pan American Bridge Company, both of which were located less than an hour away.
