Robidoux Creek Bridge
Posted April 29, 2007, by Robert L. Elder (Bass-tbn [at] ku [dot] edu)

There are apparently several truss bridges over Robidoux (pronounced RUBY-doe), Creek in this vicinity, but I am relatively confident that this photo is of this specific bridge. If this is incorrect, please let me know. This Warren pony with verticals and polygonal top chords was photographed in May, 2005.
