DJ, here is a link to a photo of the old SR 18 bridge. http://www.carrollcountymuseum.org/photo/item.php?in=101153
Just to the east of the concrete arch bridge at the intersection of Springboro Road and Indiana Highway 18 was an old one-lane bridge. It crossed the river just a few hundred feet to the north of the current bridge, which was built somewhere in the early 1980s out of concrete and steel. The west end of the bridge was connected to a highway that crossed right in front of the Springboro General Store. The east end, toward Delphi, went up a slight hill, and this portion of the roadway still exists and is labeled as "Rodgers Lane."
Does anybody have any pictures or information about the old iron bridge that was replaced in the early 1980s? I loved crossing this bridge as a young child.
