Yes, those pictures were posted in error. I tried to delete them when I realized my error, but I was not able to remove them. I am glad to see the correct photos of this bridge.

The photo by Robert Elder for this bridge is incorrect--it is for another bridge over Silver Creek. I've attached a picture of the one arch bridge at this location.

The photo listed is of a different bridge (I believe the photo is the one on 192nd road on the same river). The bridge at this location has only one arch. I've uploaded a picture of the bridge.
