Not really sure if this was actually a railroad bridge. The underneath of the bridge makes me think no, but the trusses could possibly be heavy enough.

If I have posted any information that was in error, please feel free to correct it. I have never, myself, posted photos on a bridge that wasn't real. Of course, I have nothing to do with the HAER photos on this lost bridge.

Like your posting random bridges with unknown locations or wrong information.

Since this is a site made up of volunteer contributions, why don't you do some research and find out yourself what Railroad this bridge was originally purchased by the county from. Go down to the county courthouse and look thru the county court records, rather than just posting questions that no one can answer.
