CR 82 Bridge
Posted September 14, 2009, by Janis Ford (jford3 [at] columbus [dot] rr [dot] com)

9/13/09 - Bridge was relocated to the fairgrounds on the south side of Van Wert. It's a good sized bridge. Maybe 50' long? US127 a little bit north of OH116. Enter fairgrounds using gate 2. Bridge just south of there. GPS 40 51 14N, 84 35 02W. Another bridge is just west of this one.
