Saline River Bridge
Posted July 6, 2016, by Robert Elder (robertelder1 [at] gmail [dot] com)

KHRI lists this bridge as being built ca. 1900. That would seem to be reasonable. If I was to make a wild guess, I would suggest that it looks like a Kansas City Bridge Co. product that dates roughly from ca. 1900 - ca. 1910.
