Built in 1914, this bridge cost more than was budgeted and the county was unable to build the road to the bridge. World War I and a series of failed contractors left the bridge without a road until 1932 when the state built highway 105 using it. During the time between 1914 and 1932 it became known as the Lost Bridge and the name stuck. Today the state recreation area south of it's site is known by that name. The Salamonie Reservoir was going to flood the old bridge and it was removed to allow the construction of the current UCEB that is high enough to cross the reservoir at the same site in 1964.
