Haven't had the heart so go past their to see. Hoot road bridge, which is about a mile away, and this fellow, were close to my home. Tried to drive them every few days. Hoot is in poor shape, but the road is almost derelict. They may just close it

Probably replaced with a lifeless culvert!

If CLR out of Vincennes did the work...Then this little span will probably find a new life somewhere.

I know this is just a little pony, but, hell! I hate to see these little slices of history replaced! It's kinda like a favorite uncle or aunt that passes...
