Frisco - Blue River Bridge
Probably built ca 1900 by KCS, used by Frisco until this section was abandoned in the late '60s. Removed when US 71 was rebuilt to connect to the Watkins Drive project in the late '80s.
The north abutment is still visible inside the flood wall.
The black railroad bridge is barely visible as a few dark lines to the left of the silver highway bridge.
