The NBI is a good source for information on these bridges. I will explain the process for finding this.

1. On the bridge page, click "Try to find in NBI"

2. Look through the results

3. If you think you have found the right bridge, click "Import" and this will show you a map of the bridge location. Just be aware, that the map is not always correct.

4. You now have three choices to import the bridge. Click on the appropriate choice and then click on "Continue".

5. In this particular instance, the bridge already existed on the site, so the widget brought up a list of bridges in Montgomery County, KS. I found the right one. (You can view the bridges individually if you are not certain if you have the right bridge - in this case the right Verdigris River Bridge).

6. Click "Continue"

7. Verify that the information is correct to the best of your knowledge.

8. Click "Save changes"

The NBI data is now added. You can use the same process to add a bridge to this website through the NBI.
