Unnamed creek Bridge
Posted August 4, 2011, by Nathan Holth (form3 [at] historicbridges [dot] org)

This is interesting. The bridge is indeed the same design as the bridge found in Kansas http://bridgehunter.com/ks/marshall/irish-creek/. This implies the design is the work of a bridge company rather than a government agency since the design is found in different states. However both bridges give construction dates well after the usual period where bridge companies did design work rather than following state standard plans for bridges.
