Flint Hills Nature Trail - Big John Creek Bridge
Posted January 27, 2018, by Nick Schmiedeler (nick [at] nickschmiedeler [dot] com)

Another rail-to-trail being worked on currently here in Jan. 2018, this one obviously needs some safety updates for pedestrians, this bridge built 1930 by American Bridge Co. out of NY.
