Mr. Vance is correct. The photos show the 175th Street Bridge (immediately to the west) which has recently been added to the website. It is good to have both bridges on here, but perhaps the webmaster could move the photograps to the correct bridge.

Thanks to Mr. LeMasters for documenting these bridges.

The street view shows a similar but much longer bridge in this location. Possibly the new photos are of the next bridge to the west on this old alignment of US 81.
