I definitely do want to visit Kansas sometime, if for no other reason than for the unrivaled collection of Marsh arches, to say nothing of the other interesting truss bridges and such.

Hopefully you can make a trip out to Kansas someday. It would be good to see some of the local bridges documented on your site.

These railings may be from a standardized plan. This general design was popular in Kansas during the post-war period through the 1960s.

Let me just give my honest opinion here. As a Michigan resident, when I plan a trip to Kansas will I plan to visit and photo this bridge? No. If it happens to be on the direct way to another more important historic bridge would i photo it? Maybe if time allows. If I lived in Kansas and this bridge was in my area would I photo it? Yes.

As true as that may be, I think anyone can learn through trial and error (even as many errors as he has had), and I think that Sheldon is really starting to catch on here. As far as the bridges with the railings, historic significance is historic significance, and I think it is excellent that they were posted by Sheldon--to me, it shows that he's willing to look deeper into what makes a bridge historic, and to move away from posting bridges just to win some kind of contest to see who can post the most. We should be encouraging him with these types of postings, as they are what this website is all about. If he's willing to do what it takes to fit in and do it right, by all means, let him! :>D

Yeah, but I'm not sure ornate railings are a big enough reason to add to the growing collection of stringers and slabs courtesy young Mr. Weins

I think Sheldon is right here, too. Again, railings count big in these otherwise insignificant structures. While certainly not a historic truss or other rare design, I think the railings count on this one.

Absolutely not!!!!! Do you think the 1940's is modern? This bridge actually does look historic.
