Description 

The state awarded a contract to R. L. Schutt of Indianapolis for $23,362.78 in July 1939 to construct a 96-foot "steel truss" with a right skew over Sycamore Creek [FA 293-F (2)] on State Route #67. The state rerouted State Route #67 in this area in 1967 and abandoned the roadway segment to Indiana University's Bradford Woods where the bridge now serves as a trail.
