US 171 Noble Overpass

Map 

Description 

The overpass was constructed from April to October 1934, replacing a grade crossing at the same location. This project was one of several improvements relating to the relocation of US 171 between Many and Mansfield, which was completed in 1937.

Replaced in 2003 by twin two-lane overpasses as part of the four-laning of US 171 through the area.
