Whippoorwill Creek Bridge
Posted May 5, 2010, by Nathan Holth (form3 [at] historicbridges [dot] org)

Floodwaters rose far above this bridge's deck yesterday. Not that it matters, since it appears this bridge is being replaced and will likely be demolished despite its obvious historic and aesthetic value. Photos courtesy Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.
