Little Pipe Creek Old US 31 Bridge
Posted June 22, 2016, by Nate Scheblo (natescheblo [at] gmail [dot] com)

Business (OLD) 31 is currently closed for bridge work. The concrete arch is being preserved and the deck is being rehabed. I saw it when the old deck was removed, exposing the top of the arch, should have taken pictures... Construction to be completed by August 2016.
