Spring Creek-Jayhawk Rd. Bridge

This one is likely older than the Kansas Default Date of ca. 1910. It looks like a ca. 1890 span to me, and it could be constructed of wrought iron instead of steel.

Very much closed pony. Overgrown Jayhawk Rd. west of 15th, slightly winding to bridge, blocked off and appears to have some decking fire damage, nice elevation off creek. Neat private spot.
