Added some new photos. I've passed by this bridge many times and finally stopped. It's in great shape and believe some money has been appropriated for some more preventative maintenance on it. It's a great bridge!

This bridge was again rehabbed sometime in the early 2000's with a complete paint job, a new deck and new approach spans. It just goes to show that many of these nice old structures can be saved if they wanted to save them!

Here's another one with the guard rail attached to the main bridge vertical supports instead of to the road deck. If someone actually hit a guard rail, they would be stressing the main bridge supports instead of just the guard rail.

Build date for this bridge is incorrect. It may have been relocated here in 1910, but it is a Wrought Iron Bridge Company span that dates to 1885-1890.
