Bachelor Creek Bridge
Posted July 31, 2017, by Robert Elder (robertelder1 [at] gmail [dot] com)

See KHRI PDF for image. This bridge appears to have been replaced with a low water crossing.

Thankfully, neighboring Butler County has preserved, or at least spared, two Kansas City Bridge & Iron Pratt trusses.
