Chikaskia River Bridge
Posted May 17, 2012, by Robert Elder (robertelder1 [at] gmail [dot] com)

This is definitely an interesting bridge, despite its relatively recent construction date. In addition to being a curved T-beam bridge, it also features those classic Kansas ballustrades.

This bridge replaced an earlier T-Beam that still carries traffic on the old alignment about 1/2 mile to the south.
