Buck Creek-CR 125E Bridge

Pic #1 shows the old concrete arch bridge that used to span Buck Creek on US36, it was replaced in 1987. This old plate girder span sits abandoned very close to the UCEB.

Background of picture 1 did anyone notice the concrete arch bridge, Assuming that may be the railroad bridge or maybe an even older bridge north of the bridge.
