This is a great bridge especially with its balustrade railings. It is an excellent example of a Topeka Bridge and Iron structure. This company built a massive number of closed spandrel concrete bridges in the area.

This is an interesting little foot bridge. It looks to me as though the deck has a little bit of a camber.
