Old US 36 Bridge/Duncan Creek Bridge
Posted January 17, 2016, by James McCray (jamesinslocomb [at] yahoo [dot] com)

As the old saying goes: "When life throws you stop signs, take a historical truss bridge, demolish it, and then take several remaining scrap pieces of it and use them as supports for the signs."

The stop sign near this bridge and another one close by (http://bridgehunter.com/ks/doniphan/bh70571/) are supported by what looks like pieces of an old truss bridge. Anyone know anything about where these pieces come from?
