Well, I guess it is gone. I never got a chance to photograph it, but I seem to remember that it was a Pratt truss.

Searched out and found site today where this bridge USED TO BE - signs of an old existing bridge were very clear - scrap metals, poles in the ground, built- up- earth approach and exit roads, concrete areas on both sides (see pictures)

A single span Pratt through truss was extant here as of 2003. Its current status is unknown. The bridge was visible from K-18 in the winter when the foliage was off the trees.

The bridge spanned a former channel of the Kansas River.
