This bridge is now owned privately, and is located on private property. As a courtesy to the landowner, please do not visit without permission. Landowner information will not be disseminated on this website.
The road, now called SW 90th Street, and bridge are shown on the 1970 county road map. The 1975 map shows no county road along the entire mile of border between sections 16 and 21. Again, the bridge is owned privately now.
This bridge was likely part of an early road from Augusta to Wichita.
