Mill Creek IN 42 Bridge
Posted May 13, 2010, by Jim Grey (mobilene [at] gmail [dot] com)

What I think is part of the previous bridge's abutment remains. It is just south of the east portal. The first photo below shows it. The second image is of what I believe was the road's path when this older bridge was still in place. The vestiges of this alignment still exist northwest of the current bridge. The dotted line of the old abutment crosses Mill Creek at about where that line of blocks lies.
