Description 

According to a couple different internet sources, this bridge was originally located at 42.177191, -97.667448, carrying 852 Rd across Willow Creek between 542 and 543 Avenues. This bridge was relocated in 1994. Current GPS coordinates are an estimate. Another unknown mystery is if this bridge was relocated in 1994, why did it continue to be reported as the historic bridge in the NBI?
