Irondale Arch Bridge
Posted January 3, 2016, by Ethel Bradley (emcobra_1 [at] yahoo [dot] com)

Can you go up on the bridge? What are the directions to it? There is an old double arch bridge similar in Creston Kansas. ou can go up on the bridge, but it is blocked off to traffic and is definitely not in use any longer. But wonderful to look at. Amazing!!
