Madison River Bridge
Posted March 25, 2018, by Matt

This is called the Three Dollar Bridge. This section was moved from (I believe) Sappington on the Jefferson River when that bridge was replaced. Its twin span is still sitting off of Hwy 2 about a mile and a half east of the US287/MT2 junction. I can remember in June 2001 passing this bridge section two days in a row, once north of Ennis and the next day it was south of Ennis on the highway.
