Kentucky Creek Bridge
Posted January 28, 2017, by Robert Elder (robertelder1 [at] gmail [dot] com)

This bridge may have been closed after I-135 was built to the west. It does not appear in the 2015 NBI - or in the 1992 NBI for that matter. Nor does it appear in the KHRI.

Satellite imagery indicates that this may possibly be a pony truss. It may still be on a county right or way, or it may have been transferred to a private landowner. If you attempt to visit, please get permission if the road is private.
