Friendship Road Bridge

This bridge was built by the Lafayette Bridge Co. I think the year is 1898. It was moved to this location at a later date. There is a derelict thru truss over the same creek just west of this bridge.

Webmaster's note: The photo that was here has been incorporated into the main site.
