The bridge is quite solidly in the middle of Chase County. I however don't know how to change the county. Looks like a Baughn thing.

Appears to possibly be in Chase County. Anyone know how to change the county without having to delete the whole entry?

I apologize if I posted the route number 117 instead of 177. It was actually a little confusion. Sometimes highways with three digit names get me mixed up. I'll try to remember 177 next time I search for a historic bridge on highway 177. And I couldn't tell if this bridge is in Chase or Butler county. Or maybe it's on the boundary. I highly think it is in Butler county. So this bridge actually doesn't belong here.
