US-40 Salt Creek Bridge
Posted June 15, 2016, by Kelly McClanahan

I did some checking in the "old" bridge here. According to the old quad map, 40 Highway was four lane, the "old" road (which most likely was the old road in the first place) was east bound lanes, and the current bridge was the west bound. At some point, most likely after I-70 was built, US was reduced to a two lane highway at that point.
