Duncan Bridge

Map 

Description 

Based on blueprints hanging on the wall in the Hancock County Highway Department. Design was very similar to the extant Hays Bridge and it's mysterious twin the Murphin Bridge. All were designed by Winfield Fries of Greenfield. The Duncan Bridge was somewhat longer and also skewed. I have yet to find a photograph of it.
