Vernon Railroad Bridge
Posted April 20, 2013, by Richard Tekulve (canoeindiana [at] yahoo [dot] com)

This bridge just went through a renovation process but not near as bad as the Otter Creek Bridge just east of here. This bridge is located aprox. 1000 ft. East of the 1837 Vernon Underpass. A person could easily walk the distance (less than a half-mile) to both the two railroad trestles and the underpass in one trip.
