South Fabius River CR 159 Bridge
There is evidence near & below bridge to indicate a previous bridge, likely a Parker Through Truss, again likely something plain & non-descript like Lyell Ford bridge upstream from this location. This bridge may have been relocated here, but a 1992 MODOT report appears to suggest that it was erected here in 1930.
