Big River Bridge
Posted May 30, 2015, by tom pierce (houndog412002 [at] yahoo [dot] com )

I lived just over the hill from this bridge in the 60's and watched being built.i wonder if there is anyone out there with pictures of the single lane truss bridge it replaced.it was torn down in the 90's I think.
