Yes, I would probably visit if I still lived in Kansas - I just wish I could have photographed the Baltimore truss that stood just south of the bridge - that one was replaced by a UCEB.

I wish that bridge was closer to me: I'd love to get some photos of it.

This bridge appears to be skewed - assuming that the arch itself is skewed and not just the walls.

Good bridge, Sheldon. This is what the Bridgehunter site is about, not bland mass-produced concrete slabs. Thanks for posting it.
