Not a real scenic location...Need to put it in a park and take all of the steel added in the 70's off of it to "unmask" it's true beauty!

Pike county newspaper sez Petersburg Bridge will be replaced with the Bowstring Bridge that is located on CR650E over the Patoka River in Pike State Forest. Will find the article.
