About the location of this bridge-

Survey number HAER IN-99 reports this bridge is on Vermilion Co. road 315 west. I have looked on several maps and the only bridge that is over the Little Vermilion River in the area is on County road 310 North. I believe that the the road number may have been changed. Google Earth shows a new bridge sometime after 1998.
