Little Vermilion River Bridge
Posted April 4, 2016, by Tony Dillon (spansaver [at] hotmail [dot] com)

This bridge was seated upon a brick and concrete foundation. The brick was obviously from an earlier bridge as elements of a wingwall from a shorter span can be seen here. The concrete was likely added in 1912 when the girders were placed. Very unique and a shame this wasn't preserved!

Per satellite view, looks like bridge is gone and road has been realigned with a new Lego bridge to take its place.
