107th Street (abandoned) Cedar Creek Bridge
Posted June 12, 2017, by Anonymous

I had heard a rumor that there used to be several truss bridges parked in a field somewhere in this area. Is there any truth to this rumor? Did they all get demolished? Is the rumor just an urban legend? I can't see any indication of a truss graveyard on google maps or bing maps, so I have my doubts that there is a bridge jackpot around here...but...one can hope...

I have never seen this bridge, but I just discovered this unexpectedly extant bridge via Bing Maps Bird's Eye.
