Big Walnut Creek US 36 Bridge
Posted March 31, 2007, by Tom Hoffman (tehoffm [at] hotmail [dot] com)

This bridge no longer exists. It was in crumbling condition and was torn down a few years ago. Also a passing lane was added going up the hill from the bridge. This was also sparking fears of road closure and trucks using the nearby covered bridges.
