It's great to be a part of the many dedicated "Bridgehunters" that make this website what it is. The passion and dedication that I see from the contributors here just help to keep me focused in documenting our historic spans of past and present.
The New Ford Bridge is one of the lost spans from Indiana's SHAARD database, a treasure trove of bridges extant in the 1980's. Sadly, today approximately 70% of these landmarks have been obliterated and lost forever. As time permits I will continue to add these "glimpses" from the past. They help us to remember just how fragile our historic bridge heritage really is.
P.S. Thank you for the kind words Todd!
Awesome milestone Tony! There needs to be more dedicated bridge fans like you to post more pictures like you. I have a new camera and with spring here, I might bridgehunt around Defiance, Ohio. There is two historic railroad bridges worth posting on here.
