Description 

On June 25, 1939, floodwaters washed out the existing Highway 11 bridge over the North Loup River on the northern edge of Burwell. No effort was made to replace the structure until the following winter, when in March 1940 engineers for the Nebraska Department of Roads and Irrigation designed a new steel bridge

I wrote a mystery bridge article about this bridge in hopes the answers to some questions I have will come about. Here a link to the article: http://thebridgehunter.areavoices.com/2014/04/26/mystery-bri...

Happy bridgehunting! :-)
