Thanks for bushwacking through! Bridge Hunter of the Year...........
Brutal trip to get there though from public land to south - unbelievable weeds and forested area
Another fun and unphotographed find on Saturday with my buddy Wayne, really a beautiful old great piece of Kansas history, private property to the north old overgrown public road to the south
I just discovered this one via aerial imagery. Google Maps has some good winter imagery, so one can get a decent look. Bing is not as helpful in this instance.
The main span is clearly a 6 panel Pratt through truss with a length of roughly 100 feet. In addition, there appears to be a pony truss on the south approach. The bridge is lightweight, so I would guess that it is probably pre-1920.
As I mentioned in the previous comment, the bridge may be private, so I will see about obtaining permission for a field visit. Of course, if someone else gets landowner permission first, more power to them.
Another truss bridge is rusting in peace. This one may be on private property.
