Map 

Description 

Best guess on location. This is the only crossing with a Bolckow address. The 1927 topo shows two bridges west of Bolckow. One appears to be the original channel and another is over the straightened channel. Later maps show a straightened road and a single bridge. At present it appears there's no trace of the original channel left in this heavily farmed area.

Bolckow Bridge

This bridge was bypassed in the late 1980s on a realignment. The bridge was soon demolished after the new bridge was completed.
