Blanchard River TR 241 Bridge
Posted August 30, 2009, by Brian McKee (bjmckee51 [at] yahoo [dot] com)

As of August 2009, this iron bridge is being moved a short ways east of its original location and will become part of a bike trail. A new timber covered bridge will be built in its place. I will post more photos as this project continues.
