The NBI lists GPS coordinates for many bridges that are off by a few miles in Nebraska. I've corrected some in some counties, I am sure others have done the same. But many remain off by a few miles.

Anyone travel this way much? Only Bridge on Sat images is between Hubbell and Reynolds. South West of where this pin is. Looks like a new bridge with old abutments to the South East.
