Hey guys- here's a little info on this bridge. It was bypassed and standing next to the new bridge, when apparently a tree fell on it. I dont know the extent of the damage, but I was told it is in storage for possible reuse. It is a Wrought Iron Bridge Co. tubular bowstring thru truss (circa1874). I hope to see it again someday.
I think I've found where this bridge was located. Nothing left but one abutment. Hopefully has been dismantled for future use rather than destroyed.
I don't think this bridge does exist. That or itís well hidden, because I can't find it either. Miami County has an iron bridge festival and their web site lists the remaining iron bridges in the county, with the exception of paw paw creek. There seems to be very little information regarding this bridge or itís status.
Does this bridge even still exist? I drove to what I thought was the location of this bridge and found a concrete structure there. I hope this bridge was disassembled and moved instead of torn down!
