Looks like the Google Streetview car passed by while they were building the new bridge and they built a temporary road or two with a culvert for the construction equipment to cross the stream on.

The temporary construction road(s) were apparently later removed.

That's my $0.02

From the new street view, it looks like they've built a dam in the creek under the new bridge using dirt.

We also need to verify the county. The map indicates that this on is in Chase County, not Butler County.

David,

I'm very sorry, but sometimes I get very confused on highway names. If it's a three number name, then sometimes I would end up flip-flopping the numbers around. I'll try to remember the true name next time.

A couple good finds, Sheldon, but please verify the Route numbers.

Thanks!
