There is another bridge from Montgomery County on your site that I was present when it was moved from it's former site before being moved to the Indianapolis Museum of Art. It's the pony bridge. I was working at the art museum at the time, and the morning it was being lifted from the creek banks, I was there with the director of the museum.
Your quite welcome Steven. I wanted to make sure it was on here, as unfortunately it is the last of many nice through trusses in Montgomery County. Being on an abandoned road is the only thing that saved it. The private owner told me they were planning on putting a new floor on it. It has some serious structural issues that need to be dealt with someday. This county, like most, never figured out how to paint a steel bridge.
I was hoping this bridge was included on this website. During the winter months you can see this bridge very clearly from I-74 heading east just either before or after the 44 mile marker.
Thank you for including it.
