Squirrel Creek Bridge
Posted August 11, 2011, by Nathan Holth (form3 [at] historicbridges [dot] org)

This bridge is to be closed to vehicular traffic but left for pedestrians. By the way, both Google Maps and the news article name the road as "Rangeline Road" but this bridgehunter page lists the road as Kickapoo Road. Is that therefore an error that we should correct?
