Wabash - Cowmire Creek Bridge
Posted June 22, 2016, by John Marvig (marvigj27 [at] gmail [dot] com)

Did a field check the past weekend. The bridge DOES indeed exist! Unfortunately, don't expect to see it in the summer months, as it is far too treed in to get any views of, and thus I do not have any documentation of this structure.
