New photos don't seem to match the current structure. Photo 5 shows a three span slab with columns. The new photos show two spans with solid piers.

I live in Iowa but have been to this bridge four or five times. Always visit after the weather permits us to leave Iowa. One of our family cemeteries Green Valley also known as Gerard Cemetery is located on the NW side of the bridge behind the barricade and very close to the approach to the bridge. Two Baxter family members' bodies were moved to Bradfield Cemetery in order for this bridge to be built here. There are still other Gerard graves here and one Harp grave. The stones are very short uprights. I would love to have a photograph of the graves if anyone ever visits the area before the foliage comes out. My great grandfather and his brother were moved and my maternal great grandfather and grandmother are still in this cemetery. 4-14-2010
