Clear Pond Ditch Bridge
Posted April 11, 2008, by J.R. Manning (thekitchenguy [at] sbcglobal [dot] net)

This bridge has an eerie similarity to the Minerva Creek Bridge in Marshall County, Iowa. The Minerva Creek Bridge is also an arch and has nearly identical parapet walls, including the ends broken off, like this bridge.

It is on this site in the Marshall County, Iowa listings.
