Prairie Creek Bridge

Tried to access this bridge to take pictures, however despite online map listings, CR 1150N, once west from the CR 800W T-intersection, becomes nearly impassible. Even 4 wheel drive vehicles or ATVs wouldn't be recommended. Sullivan County no longer maintains this section, nor does it maintain CR 875W. The bridge may still be intact, but the only recommended access is by foot (and in very dry weather, as the area is prone to flooding).
